The activity park within the grounds of Pavilion Gardens is open all year round and is a great place to inspire some fun adventures. There is a specific area for the younger children to play in safely which provides multiple activities including climbing, hiding, crawling, sliding down and array of others to keep them busy all day.

Right next to the activity park is a small ball court, which is a very versatile area and can be used by anyone who fancies shooting some hoops, playing a one-on-one half court game, or just using it to have a kick about.

For the older kids we also have our larger activity area which includes a five piece outdoor gym area for the fitness enthusiasts. There are hours of fun to be had on the swings, slides, climbing frames and activity areas, perfect for letting imaginations run wild. Whether you're defending your castle from dragons, or racing your pirate ship around the world, it can all be done right here.
