Our Adventure Playground offers over an acre of safe, staffed space where children & young people can come to play, make new friends, develop skills & try new things.
We are open to children of every background between the ages of 6 – 16.
- Children thrive with positive social interactions
- Play helps children develop responsibility through risk
- that children who can play freely develop strong social skills and positive connections with others in their community
- that children need space to take responsibility, to explore and challenge themselves
So much to do
There’s a big emphasis on outdoor play with gardening and the Edible Playground as well as our exciting structures and free play. You can also come inside and try arts and crafts, cookery, table tennis and much more.
Recent activities, events & projects include:
- In partnership with Urban Growth we built a new growing area, pond and greenhouse & teach children and young people to gardening skills
- Our new football club in partnership with FC United is up, running & scoring goals
- Bee Urban and our thriving bee hives produced over 120kg of delicious Slade Gardens Adventure Playground Honey – come in & try some!
- Our summer Theatre sessions were so popular that we are launching the Slade Gardens Theatre in April
- Last year we visited Clip & Climb, Flip Out Trampoline Park, Crystal Palace, Myatts Field Water Park, went bowling, had a slime making workshop, made brilliant things out of scrap & recycling at Hannah Theodoru’s arts and crafts workshops, designed T-shirts and much more besides
