Belton's outdoor adventure playground

Set within an ancient wilderness, Lincolnshire's largest outdoor adventure playground promises hours of fun and discovery for children of all ages, all year round.

Make a splash with water, create some noise with the chimes and music blocks or simply wander further into the wood and build a den. There's endless possibilities of fun for the whole family in Belton's award-winning playground.

Take a ride on the train

Take a train ride through the adventure playground, up to the woods and back again. The train runs every day, weather permitting. Rides cost £1.50 per seat, and the train driver writes the last journey of the day on the station board.

Have fun, play safe!

Play opportunities at Belton encourage challenging playful experiences in a safe environment to facilitate child development at all stages. The equipment’s designed to be challenging, as a result, some equipment may not be suitable for all children.

Only you know the abilities and limitations of the children in your care so please keep a careful watch on them and make sure they’re playing safely. You’re also encouraged to play in the spaces provided so that everyone can enjoy the play experience.
