Three play areas will get a £131,000 boost.
Meltham, Scholes and Cleckheaton play areas will be improved through funding from developers.
Kirklees Cabinet agreed that £79,000 allocated from the Jones Homes development at Helme Lane, Meltham, can be used for improvements to the Broadlands recreation ground.
Of that £50,000 will be used to fund phase B of the skate park, with £29,000 to be spent on general improvements such as wall repairs. The Friends group is contributing a further £4,500 towards the skate park scheme.
In Scholes, near Cleckheaton, £39,000 from the Ben Bailey Homes development at Old Popplewell Lane will be spent on improving the play area at Scholes Recreation Ground, with fitness facilities. Footpaths and drainage will also be improved.
While in Cleckheaton, £13,000 from the Prospect Mills development will be added to a pot that already has £11,475 for the St Pegs play area.
When developers secure planning permission they are often required to make a so-called Section 106 payment towards public open space as a condition of the consent.
