Play Areas and Outdoor Gym
The council owns The Limes Play Area, between Ashdale Road and The Limes. There are springers, swings for toddlers and older children, a seesaw, a basket swing, a multi-play (to be replaced in 2022), a rotating cone climber, a netting tunnel, and a five-a-side football area.
There is another play area at Baxton's Road at Helmsley Recreational Charity (the council is Sole Trustee). This has a multi-play, zip wire, springers, a Vortex Rotator (for holding on to and swing round) and other equipment. It is by the car park by Helmsley Outdoor Pool and has been leased to Helmsley Sports Club.
There is also an outdoor gym at the Helmsley Recreational Charity on the John Atkinson Memorial Trust Playing Field.
