Play goes 'old school' at our fabulous new nature play space in Dempsey
SCHOOL HOLIDAYS ONLY (04.07.20-08.08.20)
Are you tired of indoor play gyms and pirate-ship playgrounds which offer the same limited play-formula for children? Then come along and experience our nature space where nature takes centre stage and offers limitless possibilities for adventurous play and exploration for children aged 2 years to 12 years.
We mix it up each week with new play opportunities and optional activities to connect children with the natural world. Through opening our Forest School site up for nature play we provide more opportunities for children to get outdoors without the regular commitment of Forest School.
"Nature Play provides the child with the space, place and time to follow their own play-urges – and you are the secure base" -
The difference between Nature Play and Forest School
Safety in our Nature Space
Nature play in the tropics isn't without its hazards, and it won't be right for everyone. Take a look at our Hazard Watch to know what to expect!

Please have your child's ID number ready for the manual check-in of children.
Groups no bigger than five persons.
Strict site capacity limits apply so please book in advance to guarantee your place.
