Adventure playgrounds

Adventure playground

Children LOVE watching the animals at Marwell, or riding on the train - but every parent knows that sometimes children need to run!

Swing, climb, run, slide...

That's why we have 5 adventure playgrounds at Marwell, so the children can swing like lemurs, climb like monkeys, run like cheetahs and slide like penguins.

Of course parents must play a supervisory role - but can sit like hippos if they wish.

Strategically placed (for coffee)

The playgrounds are sensibly placed around the zoo, and during busier times of the year it is always possible to grab a cup of tea or coffee nearby - to drink while you watch.

Accidents do happen. For first aid or emergency assistance please call 01962 777983, use one of our free emergency telephones at the playground or speak to a member of staff. Our mobile first aiders have a defibrillator (AED) and there's also one in our gift shop, where we have a first aid room too.

P.S. Watch out for the slides in the playgrounds and the loveable bronze hippo statue which can get hot when it's sunny!

I would suggest the answer is that Kids have very… Read full reviewChris, 30th May 2018
