Play Areas

When the park was initially created in 1996, it was decided to create smaller play areas dotted around the new housing. In total, there are now five play areas that the Trust is responsible for. three are for younger children and can be found in Manston Way, Puddingstone Drive, and Stanmore Chase.

The fourth at Trestle Arts Base (Russet Drive) is for older children and teenagers and was installed in 2016 following a successful application in the Tesco “Bags of Help” scheme.

The fifth Play Area is by the Village Green and created in 2022 from donations through Facebook, workplace donations where people use their company scheme to make a donation to a charity or where people made a private donation direct to the Trust and the money raised from the St Albans Cathedral Firework Display, of which Highfield Park Trust was one of the beneficiaries in 2021.
