Lambeth has 14 adventure playgrounds, including one for children with disabilities (Charlie Chaplin). Adventure playgrounds are supervised by play workers and provide a varied programme of activities, with a variety of exciting structures on site and a range of activities.
All adventure playgrounds are free to use, but there may be a small charge for outings and certain activities. Adventure playgrounds offer all 5 to 16 year olds a special meeting point and a wide range of activities and experiences. Young people can keep busy with indoor and outdoor activities.
Seven of Lambeth's Adventure playgrounds are managed by voluntary organisations:
The other 7 are managed by the council:
Temporary closure of some adventure playgrounds
At present, Max Roach is open as usual and activities are being delivered at Tulse Hill and Streatham Vale. The other four Adventure playgrounds managed by the council are temporarily closed (Kennington, Lollard Street, Loughborough and Willington). However there are alternative activities taking place across the borough. Follow the link to Young Lambeth for more information and to keep up to date with any future news.
Additional information to note:
- The Charlie Chaplin adventure playground in Kennington Park caters specifically for children with disabilities.
- If your children would like to use the adventure playgrounds, they can just turn up - staff are on hand to help ensure their safety and prevent bullying.
- Parents and carers are welcome. Childcare groups and play schemes are also welcome, but must phone to book first to avoid overcrowding.
