About us

Essex Playing Fields is an Essex charity, founded in 1924. It is devoted to the creation, preservation, improvement and development of playing fields, play grounds and play areas, particularly for local children, young people and those with disabilities.

Our charitable status means we are completely independent and answerable to no-one but our membership.

We offer help and advice to our members with concerns to their play areas and our Field Officers are trained to advise with all aspects of grounds maintenance, health and safety and play equipment issues.
