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 email us so we can help identify the right support for your child.

Operations during the Covid Pandemic

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 are currently unable to operate on this basis. We have conducted a Covid risk assessment and together with government guidelines have made the decision to operate on a closed access, pre booked basis for the foreseeable future.

Adventure Playground ‘Play Hive sessions’

We are offering a 2 hour after school session Monday – Friday in the Adventure Playground for 5 – 15 year olds. 4.00pm – 6.00pm. You may book these sessions as a one off at £7.50 per child. Frequently asked questions are here.

For St Mary’s, Deer Park and Orleans Primary schools we will be offering our ‘Walking Buzz’ service. We will collect your child directly from their teacher at school and walk them along our pre risk assessed routed to the AP. Sessions are £15 with the additional pick up. Your child must have had their 8th birthday to use this service.

We are open Monday – Saturday 1-3pm and 3.30-5.30pm all summer long for drop off Play Hive sessions.


We will offer two prebookable play sessions every Saturday 1.00pm -3.00pm and 3.30-5.30pm all year.

Praise for Marble Hill Playcentres

“I had a lovely time here today with my 2 year old…..lots of toys and activities to do inside and outside…great venue”

Rachel H, One O’Clock Club

“My 5 year old son has been a few times and loves it. He can be quite shy but the team there are welcoming, fun and really helpful. The adventure playground caters for those who are fearless about climbing, leaping and rope swinging and for the more timid there’s plenty to build, create and play with.”

Siubhan R., Adventure Playground

“The playworkers who help at the sessions are excellent – patient, kind and understanding. We would be lost without it and it has become a key part of our week”

Parent, 2020, SENsational Saturday Club

“Lots of thought and planning is evident in their drive to facilitate play with the children, as well as exhibiting the value of inclusion and creativity. Very welcoming environment and would recommend everyone and anyone to attend!”

Ailing C, One O’Clock Club:

“This is the only place that my son really relaxes and trusts adults other than me to play with him and help him”

Parent, 2020, SENsational Saturday Club

“Well organised, staff happily play with children – mums & dads banned! :-)”

John F., Adventure Playground

“From my point of view, this place has provided a sanctuary where I have access to a group of parents who understand what it is like to have a child with additional needs.”

Parent, 2020, SENsational Saturday Club
