“I like that the children can have some independence supported by friendly staff and that there are options for different levels.”

Parent Survey Response 2022, Adventure Playground

“A safe secure place for me to go with multiple children where I know they can enjoy child-led play with set-ups and activities that change all the time to offer a great variety, and I can keep an eye on everyone whilst still being able to chat to other adults.”
