There's a lot to do at the Playground!
PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid-19 the following equipment is not available at the moment:
We will keep the equipment availability under constant review and as we find our feet with keeping it all as clean as possible, and you as safe as possible, we will bring more equipment back into use.
The Sensory Room is open at £10 per 30 minute session which should be booked in advance. Please ask if you have not booked but wish to use the Sensory Room on your visit and we will see if there is availability. After each session the sesory room is deep cleaned.
Accessible Outdoor Play Equipment
Our aerial runway (zip wire) has a specially-adapted seat to enable even the most severely disabled person to enjoy the thrill of zooming down the 40-metre wire at full tilt and bouncing into the air at the far end - safely secured by the harness, of course - their faces are a picture!
The ride can be as fast or as slow as you like - most of the youngsters tend to go for the former option! The adaptations to the aerial runway do not diminish the thrills for our more able visitors!
A Safe Place For Adventure
The heart of the Playground is here . . . with visitors making over 15,000 visits each year, we need a LOT of toys! Our Playrooms are crammed with toy cars, train sets, building blocks, action figures, puzzles and all manner of games. We also have a huge range of sensory toys.
We need to keep a very wide variety of toys and games as we have so many users with such a wide variety of special need.
With a stunning view over the Lake, the Gold Annexe is a superb indoor space, offering an opportunity for creativity and imaginative play, with independent access to the Playground's outdoor spaces. Watch the weather change, marvel at the play of light across the ceiling on a sunny day, peer through the glass panel at the water below, or just enjoy the calm of the outstanding view.
