Coronavirus (COVID-19)

All four of our Adventure Playgrounds are now closed for winter - our after-school and holiday sessions will resume on Monday 14 February 2022. Our Youth Clubs will remain in operation - please see individual playground pages for more information.

The maximum number of people who can use the playgrounds at any one time is 200, inclusive of adults. We will, however, be monitoring COVID-19 transmission rates across the borough, and will reduce or increase our maximum numbers accordingly in order to keep our families safe. Children aged under five years are exempt. Up to 16 people are permitted to use the cabins, inclusive of adults.

Our adventure playgrounds

Adventure playgrounds

We have four adventure playgrounds across the borough, which are free to use and cater for 8 to 16 year olds (children under 8 are welcome when accompanied by an adult). They are a safe environment for children to meet, play and learn.

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).

Have your own adventure

We have now entered our winter closures, however our adventure playgrounds are still available to hire and are are ideal for birthday parties (including discos, pitch hire, 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 wooden play structures.

Although there will be a member of staff on the premises, parents are responsible for their children and guests at all times with the exception of laser tag and inflatables, when trained staff will be provided.
