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 multiplay, a rotating cone climber, a netting tunnel, and a five-a-side football area. In spring 2022 there will be a major refurbishment with a new multiplay, a multiplay for toddlers, a 'you to me' swing and a Warrior Pod fitness suite - parallel bars, warm-up benches, pull-up bars etc.

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, along with the Pavilion, Bowling Green and Tennis Courts.
