Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Argyll and Bute Council,

I am emailing to request a list of council owned/maintained children's playparks within the local authority area. I would be grateful if this list could be supplied in a spreadsheet format, detailing the playpark name; address; and either datazone[1] or cartesian coordinates[2] in which the playpark is situated.

Furthermore, if you hold the information, I would also like an indication for each playpark as to whether it contains any accessible play equipment. Where possible, I would appreciate if this could indicate the type of accessible play equipment present. For example, I would be grateful if you could indicate if you have any of the following in your playparks:

Inclusive dish
Wheelchair accessible roundabout
Basket swing
Wheelchair swing
High back/adaptive swing
Sensory play equipment
Wheelchair accessible trampoline
Springer with back supports
Seesaw with back supports
Wheelchair accessible multi-play unit
Wheelchair accessible play house

In addition, if you could provide information on if each playpark has any of the below that would be greatly appreciated:

Accessible toilet
Changing Places toilet
Accessible paths
Car parking nearby

You can find a previous FOI response from Dumfries & Galloway Council here [3] which has the sort of information I am looking for in an ideal format. A spreadsheet format could include either Microsoft Excel (.xls, .xlsx) or Comma Separated Variable (.csv) filetypes.

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Alasdair Rutherford
