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
Three Corners has been invaded by one giant robot who’s got a sneaky trick up his sleeve. Will he defeat you or will you be assimilated and forced to join his robot force? Perhaps you can escape by climbing across a net or swinging out of danger. And if you need somewhere to hide out, our wonky house makes a good den.
But it’s not all about keeping the planet safe from the robot invasion at Three Corners. There’s so much more to do. We have a floodlit 3G football pitch where you can kick a ball about, endless games and creative activities, and a fire pit area where adventurers can sit, cook and tell stories.
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.
No treasure found but drop back soon as the pirates are looking

The Iron Giant
Three Corners hasn’t always been battling a robot invasion. In 1975, a play hut was set up in Spa Fields and play leaders were employed by the Greater London Council to encourage children to make greater use of the surrounding park. As time passed playground structures were built by play leaders and children and the site became an adventure playground. The children noticed the large site had three points and named it ‘Three Corners’. The playground has continued to be funded by Islington Council who, under the guidance and watchful eye of our adventurers, redesigned and rebuilt it in 2012.
