Welcome to Marble Hill Playcentres

For nearly 50 years, Marble Hill Playcentres has provided local children and their families with a unique and exciting outdoor environment to play, create and interact – all in the heart of  beautiful Marble Hill Park in Twickenham.

Our Adventure Playground (for 5 -15 year olds), One O’Clock Club (for under 5’s) and SENsational Saturday Club (for children with disabilities and additional needs) encourage children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to participate in outdoor adventurous play and express themselves physically, mentally and socially, whilst having fun.
