Felix Road is a unique space dedicated to children’s play, family time and community togetherness.
Our adventure playground has an open access policy – this means children are free to come and go as they choose. Children can decide what they do and with whom, they are encouraged to control their own play. Our play space offers children the freedom to grow, explore, be creative, experiment, be wild and crazy, take measured risks, play with uncertainty…….and enjoy a healthy happy childhood.
Our playground is supervised by trained qualified playworkers. We are always on hand to offer help, support and advice while allowing the children to test their abilities, problem solve and work things out for themselves.
At the playground, you will find a wide range of play possibilities:
- large wooden structures
- tree houses
- rope and tyre swings
- a zip line
- climbing beams and nets
- performance stage
- a football and basketball pitch
- nature area
- fire pit
- pizza oven
- under 8’s area
- sensory room

- moving and loose parts, digging and gardening, team games & sports, cooking, fire pit, imaginative play, arts and crafts, woodwork & hand tools and opportunities to build dens and camps……..the possibilities are endless!

Extreme weather policy
We always say come rain or shine we will be open at Felix Road. However, sometimes the weather is just so extreme, it makes working and playing conditions too difficult, when it is really wet the wooden structures get very slippery and when winds are high any temporary shelter is at risk of flying away.
We will always let you know on Facebook and with a sign on the gate if we have to close due to extreme weather.
When the Government issued their COVID-19 guidance to staffed playgrounds in early July we took the decision that it was safer and healthier for everyone if we only played outside at Felix Road. We are currently deciding whether we should open a ventilated building in November or continue with outdoor play and more covered space.
