Age Range: 5 – 15 years

The adventure playground at Marble Hill Playcentres is completely unique in this borough. With its huge wooden structures and large open spaces, we provide a special place for thousands of children each year. Here children learn fantastic life lessons by testing their limits, discovering how things work and what they really enjoy to do. Adults are not permitted in the AP, giving the children freedom to make their own choices, giving them the opportunity to play and form new friendships with others outside of their usual peer group. We have a team of playworkers to supervise the children, facilitate play, and organise daily activities. If you have a child with additional needs who requires adult 1-1 support please call/message on 07522 182524 or email us at ap@marblehillplaycentres.com so we can help identify the right support for your child.

Closed Access in the Adventure Playground

The Adventure Playground has historically been an open access site where children are free to come and go as they choose. Due to the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic we have made the decision to operate on a closed access, pre booked basis which enables parents to drop off their children with us for a 2 hour session.
