Council Facilities

Yate Town Council has various facilities across Yate which are actively used by local people.

Yate Town Council continues to give children’s play areas a high priority and in recent years has increased the number of facilities, not just for the young children, but also for the growing number of Yate teenagers. Peg Hill Skate Park and the teenage seating area at Longs Drive are examples of these facilities.

Kickabout Areas

Additionally, kickabout areas are also very popular and as a result, can be found at the following play area sites: Kingsgate Park, Wellington Road and Millside Play Zone at Brimsham Park.

Yate Town Council has also provided another kickabout area on the open space at Lye Field by The Ridge Junior School and the West Yate Kickabout has recently opened in the grounds of Tyndale Primary School on Cranleigh Court Road.
