Olveston Parish is lucky to have three children's play areas within the Parish, all of which have been funded through public donations. The newest, at Tockington was mainly funded through the surpluses generated when fund raising for the new Pre School rooms a few years ago. Whilst the swings at Olveston date from the 70's the remainder was funded through the Millennium group of parents and friends in about 2002. The Old Down play area is 25 years old and drawing to the end of its effective life.
