Grovehill and Woodhall Farm Adventure Playground

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Grovehill Adventure Playground has now reopened. Our summer opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm (Monday to Friday).

Maximum numbers apply - 70 people can use the playgrounds at any one time, which is inclusive of adults, in order to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and 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

COVID advisors will be on site during busy periods to help with safety measures and to answer any questions you may have.

Both Adeyfield and Grovehill playgrounds have had a makeover with new multi-play structures including climbing walls, a sand pit, water play and double tubular slides. There are also new floodlit 3G artificial turf pitches and a multi-play basketball area.

Have your own adventure

Our adventure playgrounds are available to hire outside normal opening hours. Ideal for birthday parties (including discos, inflatables and laser tag), family gatherings 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.
