Details

Free adventure playground suitable for all ages from tots to teens!

Our brand new adventure playground focuses on family fun and features a wide range of equipment suitable for toddlers right through to teenagers. The amazing new toddler area even features a Play Galleon boat as a central point. If you remember the old playground boat you are in for a real treat with this brand new creation!

For older children we have included a bespoke ‘Mountain Tower' which has been specifically designed for us. There are actually nine towers in total, including a four floor hexagonal tower.

With its blend of green hues and natural timbers, it could not be more in keeping with our surroundings. We have worked with local company Playdale Playgrounds on this exciting redevelopment and can't wait for our visitors to come and enjoy everything the new area has to offer.


Picnic area and covered seating

The playground design also features seating for adults and children and we have incorporated canopies and shades as well as hard-wearing surfaces beneath the picnic benches so that it will now be suitable for year-round use whatever the weather.
