ABOUT US

Our Adventure Playground offers over an acre of safe, staffed space where children & young people can come to play, build confidence, make new friends, develop skills & try new things.

We are open to children and young people of every background between the ages of 0 – 21.

Accompanied children under 5 have Stay and Play activities in their own building with a mud kitchen, sand pit and enclosed open space.

6 – 16-year-olds benefit from exploring the Adventure Playground and use of the Hut after school, on Saturdays and during the School holidays.

Young adults 17 + volunteer to gain work experience, participate in accredited training and receive mentoring and support.

We believe that children

  • Thrive with positive social interactions
  • Develop responsibility through risk in the adventure play ground
  • Develop strong social skills and positive connections when playing freely with others in their community
  • Need space to take responsibility, explore and challenge themselves.

Older Adults may volunteer, or join a Pilates class on Tuesday afternoon or Thursday evening. Check our What’s on.

We also offer event hire of the facilities, especially on Sundays.

We are a registered charity and rely 100% on volunteers and donations to stay open.

June 11, 2024 is International Day of Play

Did you know, 41% of children have been told to stop playing by their parents or an adult. Think how often you see signs that say no balls? No bikes? No scooters? Play makes kids happy, helps them make friends and have a fun time. That’s also called social inclusion, conflict prevention and peace building. These are life skills. Let’s say YES to play.

Children’s Need for Play

Children’s Need for Play

“If kids are deprived of play, they aren’t going to learn to get along with others. They aren’t going to learn that they can solve their own problems. They aren’t going to believe that they are in control of their lives. Skills like empathy, resilience, and problem-solving — all essential to thriving in the 21st century — are natural benefits of  just letting kids play.” Evolutionary psychologist Peter Gray
