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.
