CLIMBING FRAMES, WOOD CHIPS & GRASS STAINS

When there isn't snow on the ground we are lucky to have a wide range of parks and playgrounds across our local towns and villages - you just need to know where to find them.  Some are walkable, others require jumping in the car, but either way there is enough variety to keep even the most fidgety and short-attention-spanned of children occupied. From up-to-date imaginative playgrounds and large wooden forts to older (only slightly rickety!) sites with roundabouts and climbing frames, you can find a favorite or visit them all.
