Collingham Community Park came into the ownership of Collingham Parish Council when the two parish councils of North and South Collingham were amalgamated in 1970. The Play Park is included in the Newark and Sherwood District Council Play Strategy plan, Collingham being a named principal village in the Core Development Plan.
The park is located next to the village primary school and the Collingham Football Club and surrounded by housing. A two lane road runs alongside it, which means that fencing, hedges and self-closing gates are necessary. There is full disabled access through all gates. It has large grassed areas, with a small area of hard surface for ball games. The park is accessible by walking from all housing in the village. It has facilities for babies, pre-schoolers, older children, teenagers and adults. The park is open to everyone without charge.
New inclusive play equipment and outdoor gym equipment was installed in 2015 following grant funding from numerous sources, including Fields in Trust.
The skate park within the space was originally installed following a campaign by the young people of the village, who with their parents, raised funds towards the cost. This was completely replaced in 2018 after obtaining further grant funding, with concrete ramps and is now suitable for all ages and abilities for use with skateboards, scooters and bikes.
