Adventure playgrounds are places where children and young people use outdoor structures and indoor facilities to play throughout the year. They provide spaces that are child friendly, exciting, fun and are ‘open-access’, allowing children to come and go as they choose.
This Adventure Playground is one of 12 adventure playgrounds across the London Borough of Islington providing children with a range of play settings that they can choose from. Adventure playgrounds provide a place where children and young people can feel:
- Safe, secure and able to play freely.
- Respected, included and valued. That difference and diversity is celebrated, and they are supported to become confident and independent.
- They have a choice of different play opportunities.
- That they can meet friends and make new ones.
- They can help in design and development of the playground and the play opportunities it offers.
