Come out and play

It’s the perfect time of year for outdoor play, and you’ll be able to get stuck in with sports and activities at many places we look after this summer thanks to support from Sport England. Many places will also have 'Come out and play' challenge cards to help inspire your summer adventure. Maybe you’ll 'Find your way' to explore new trails and or try orienteering, or 'Team up' to play group games or solve puzzles together?

Still looking for something to keep the kids busy? As well as the 'come out and play' activities, you’ll also find special pavilions of play at several places over the summer holidays. Little explorers can use the look-out point to survey their surroundings, listen out for nearby wildlife, or invent their own way to play.
