What’s lurking in the swamp?
Get messy, climb, create a superhero lair, try indoor arts and crafts and junk modelling, paint masterpieces, collect minibeasts, play sports and games or simply read a book and chill out
Make sure you’ve got your binoculars and maps handy because we’re going to explore! Get ready to make an award-winning nature documentary of Islington’s very own wildlife. Why not hop on the wooden bus designed by our very own adventurers or sail the seas to your destination? Perhaps you’ll see some newts and toads along the way. Heading for dangerous waters? Then swing to safety, make an emergency zip wire escape through the plum and apple trees, or use the climbing wall to clamber out of harm’s way… And try not to take a wrong turn in the maze!
If all that’s got you feeling a bit exhausted, sit down in front of the campfire and make some pizza or jungle toast.
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 King Henry’s Walk Adventure Playground isn’t just for explorers – we have plenty of budding scientists, superheroes, writers, artists, footballers and paleontologists too!

Did you know?
King Henry’s Walk has been part of the community for over 40 years. It was established in 1973 and built by local children using 20 foot telegraph poles! In its early days, King Henry’s Walk used an old industrial building as its indoor space. When the time came for something new, instead of going for the traditional log cabin design that’s typical of other adventure playgrounds, a modern building was constructed.
