The biggest free Adventure Playground in Cornwall, if not the South West, sits smack bang in the middle of lush green parkland at Heartlands.
There are subterranean tunnels, a shipwrecked boat to climb and possibly declare mutiny upon, and funnel slides to hurtle down. Come rain or shine, it’ll be hard to prise any child from 1 – 13yrs out of this playscape.
Co-developed with renowned play specialists, Timberplay, the Heartlands playground revels in Cornish folklore and boasts the top trumps of equipment, including a custom-made wooden climbing structure - The Giant’s Trap – which lives up to the legend of the local giant ‘BOLSTER’ who fell head over his fifty foot heels for a St Agnes maid.
The playground also has an inland beach-of-sorts, complete with diggers, tunnels and a sand transportation system. Throw in a See-saw Carousel Swing, building site for future Bobs, pyramid tower wooden train and play huts and you can sit back and leave them to it.
Better still why not grab a cup of tea or coffee and a quick bite from the Snack Shack. It’s open throughout the season (Apr-Sept).
Heartlands Adventure Playground is open every day of the year apart from Christmas Day and is free to enter. Yippee!
