Parks in Darlington

The parks team are responsible for all the parks in Darlington. There are three grounds workers dedicated to South Park alone.

Some of the things they do are:

  • Mow all the grassed areas
  • Weekly visual safety checks of play equipment
  • Bi-annual inspections for play equipment by us and by our insurers
  • Cut back shrubs and trees
  • Change annual floral displays
  • Remove graffiti
  • Remove litter
  • Empty bins
  • Work with Friends groups to maintain the parks
