Clay day at Awesome

At Cape Adventure Playground adventurers can get creative, explore nature and play outdoors, making full use of the labyrinth of rope bridges and tree houses. Bounce on a trampette, create a theme song on a piano or design your next costume in our play building.

Play is free for six to thirteen-year-olds and supervised by our Awesome playworkers – all you have to do is register and have fun. Oh, and Cape Adventure Playground isn’t just for superheroes – we have plenty of budding scientists, explorers, writers, artists, footballers and paleontologists too!

No treasure found but drop back soon as the pirates are looking

Did you know?

Swing building at Cape

Once upon a time in 1970 (or thereabouts) a resident of Crouch Hall Court created Cape Adventure Playground. But it wasn’t always called that. It was originally called CROP Adventure Playground, but over the years local children have given the playground numerous names: ‘Wooden Bridge’, ‘The Bowlers’ and finally ‘Cape’ when the logo of CAPE theatrical designs was found in an old transformer station which later became the playground’s building.
