Open spaces were high on the agenda when the initial design of Peterlee was under discussion and implementation. You will notice to this day the large amount of green areas between housing estates and the town centre. When the Peterlee Development Corporation demised in 1988, this land transferred to both the District of Easington and the Town Council. The Town Council alone maintains over 400 acres of land.
If you’d like to visit any of the play areas in Peterlee, whether you’ll be walking, driving or using the bus, you can click on any of the links below to get directions and timetables:
In 2020, Peterlee Town Council invested around £350,000 in some brilliant new play areas in Peterlee at the following sites: Woodhouse Park (off Balliol Close), Heath Close and Eden Lane. The play areas have been extended and renewed, including new safety surfaces and Woodhouse Park now boasts a parkour gym and BMX pump-track!
