Free parking in car park

This playground is in the Shoebury Garrison. The area is full of military architecture and history.

The playground is located next to the restored Cart and Wagon Shed, Heritage Centre. Inside the Cart and Wagon Shed is Serendity Cafe (a community interest company), toilets and some wartime memorabilia. I understand there are plans to showcase more local historical artifacts in the future.

Southend Beaches

The beach is a 30 seconds walk away from the playground. You cannot access the beach directly from here as it is ministry of defence land. It is a short walk either way to the beach. We love East Beach with is a five minute walk East along the sea wall and through the Garrison Estate. Or head West along Gunners Park.
