Space to play and much more!

ABOUT US

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.

We have opportunities for older users up to 19 years of age too and a One O’Clock club for the under 5s.

Entry is free!

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.

Want to come along?

Just turn up! All you need to do is register and sign in.  Staff are on hand to ensure your safety and enhance everyone’s play experiences.  Parents and carers are welcome.

Childcare groups and play schemes are also welcome but we ask that you contact us to book first to avoid overcrowding.

We would like to thank every one of our supporters past and present – we wouldn’t be here or having nearly so much fun without you!

OUR HISTORY

On 22 June 1944 a flying bomb hit and destroyed several houses in Stockwell. Killing 11 people, the damage led to the formation of Slade Gardens which became the site for our much loved adventure playground.

In 1999 Slade Gardens Community Play Association was formed as a charitable trust responsible for running the Adventure Playground.
