Playground at Compass Gardens

My kids loved this brightly coloured, enclosed playground! The playground has a nautical theme. There is a large pirate ship with different climbs and slides. There are swings, a seesaw, zipwire and spinning equipment. There is a climbing frame for smaller children and also ride on equipment.

There is lots of brightly coloured animals and objects in the flooring, which my kids seem to always love. The flooring is also super springy and feels very safe for kids that always take a tumble

Accessible play equipment includes sensory equipment and roundabout.

The equipment here is in such good condition. There are benches inside the play area and picnic benches just outside on the grass.
