Play Area

Sunday 2 October is our Race Day & Roaring Twenties Finale and to visit you will need to have purchased an event ticket in advance or buy one on the gate (entry to the Swiss Garden is included).

New play equipment now installed!

Our Play Area was opened by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and is one of the first UK Play Research and Resource Centres into Children’s Play. The play area includes special ‘high activity’ units for older children and much of the equipment has been designed for inclusive play to provide opportunities for children whatever their physical abilities.

The Play Area is suitable for children up to 12 years old.


The Play Area is free to use – please note that on some event days visitors will be unable to visit it without an event ticket. Please check the What’s On page before visiting.
