Lewisham Council - Adventure playgrounds


Adventure playgrounds

There are five adventure playgrounds where you can enjoy exciting outdoor play on structures including rope swings and climbing frames and meet other children and young people.

Our adventure playgrounds are managed by Youth First, an organisation that is run by youth workers and young people.

The adventure playgrounds are:

  • open all year round – including school holidays, except for bank holidays
  • for young people aged 8–19 (up to 25 years with additional needs)
  • free and open access – you can come and go as you please
  • open to children under eight – under eights must be accompanied by an adult at all times and there may be some restriction during the holiday periods
  • available to young people once you have completed a registration form on your first visit.
