Welcome to The Big Swing!

The playground provides a place where children and young people can play together in a supervised environment where they are free to express themselves and feel a real sense of ownership.

The Big Swing offers children the chance to engage in pro-social activities but with an element of challenge, such as using tools to construct dens, go karts and other structures  and learn how to make camp fires in our outdoor kitchen.

Activities carried out on the playground are done so under the direction of the children’s needs and wishes. Staff are on site to provide support and guidance to ensure that all children have a positive play experience.

Children and young people are free to come and go as they please. Staff are on hand to deliver the activities and ensure that children are safe during play but do not operate a signing out process, therefore staff are not responsible for children leaving the play site.

Our play sessions are aimed at children and young people aged 5-13. Under 5s are welcome but must be supervised at all times by a responsible adult aged 18 or over. Young people aged 13-16 may attend the playground during our family sessions on Saturdays.


    Free of charge, free to come and go & free to choose.
    Open 4 days a week, 50 weeks a year.
    Providing evening and weekend adventure play sessions.
