Working for Wye - past, present and future

Community Matters

Play house and climbing frame for young children, play area at Wye Rec

The children's play area at Wye Recreation Ground. Play is vital. Every day children learn and grow emotionally, intellectually, and physically just by playing and being involved in their community. During play at school at home, and in the playground, children develop their sense of belonging and community, and make their first friends.
