Consultation on the development of new play area at Hardwick Park

Tell us what you'd like to see included in a brand new play area at Hardwick Park in Sedgefield.


Hardwick Park is one of the most popular parks in the North East drawing around 450,000 visitors per year to enjoy the wonderful grounds and facilities. Investment is currently being made to improve the park's play facilities for children and young people.

The new play area

The new play area will replace the existing play facility near the Tower and will be suitable for children aged seven and above to enjoy during their visit. This will be a welcome addition to the already popular play facilities onsite for younger children next to the Tower Café.

Visit the park from 23 January and see for yourself what might be available. Vote on the different options and tell us what you'd like to see as part of the revamp.

If you're not able to visit the park, see the options in our  Icon for pdf Hardwick Park play area images (PDF, 1.6mb)

Have your say

The closing date for comments is 5.00pm on 26 February 2023.

What happens next

We'll use everyone's feedback to help in putting together the final designs for the play area. We will let you know what's happening when we have the project finalised. We expect work to start in Autumn and be completed by Spring 2024.
