Adventure playgrounds 

Our adventure playgrounds

We have four adventure playgrounds across the borough, which are free to use and cater for children aged eight to 16. They are a safe environment for children to meet, play and learn.

Please be aware that priority regarding activities will be given to children of playground age (eight to 16) - children under eight are welcome when accompanied by an adult.

They are managed and supervised by a team of qualified staff and provide a secure and stimulating environment for all children, including those with special needs and disabilities. Please remember that the playgrounds are run as open-access facilities, which means that children are not restricted and can come and go as they wish (all children attending one of our playgrounds must register beforehand, see below for registration details).

Our adventure playgrounds are available to hire and are are ideal for birthday parties (including discos, pitch hire, quads, zorbs, archery tag, inflatables and laser tag), family gatherings, corporate and school events.

The cabins are equipped with pool and table tennis tables and each adventure playground has its own unique outside sports area and play facilities.
