There’s nothing quite like playing outdoors. Swooshing down slides, clambering over logs and letting your imagination run wild. It’s no wonder that play areas are an essential part of many family days out. Here are some top places to play in Yorkshire.
There's a huge play area just two minutes from the visitor centre where little adventurers can run wild - you'll find a wooden abbey, a woodland lookout, scramble nets and posts, swings, fireman's poles, a slide, a roundabout, a gigantic rope bridge and a huge zip wire to enjoy.
Jump, swing and slide in the adventure play area tucked away in the woodland. There are climbing frames with slides, a huge fort, balance beams, swings and a big wobbly bridge. Feel the wind in your hair as you zoom between the trees on the zip wire - it's a whopping 30 metres long!
Unleash your wild ones on the 7-metre pyramid tower and slide, cantilever swing and clamber stack or explore the zone for smaller children, where they can climb and get creative in the Wendy house or soar to new heights in a bucket swing.
Enter the Lion's Den play area where little explorers can climb up, over, and wobble along a natural obstacle course. There are tree stump steps to jump across, a rope bridge to climb across as well as a wooden climbing frame to conquer.
Conquer the wooden castle, zoom down a zip-line, fly through the air on the swings, whoosh down the slide and try the new accessible see-saw as you get your muscles moving in the adventure play area.
Tucked away within the trees, this natural play area has lots for little ones to discover. Find the hidden entrance to start your adventure. Cook up a messy masterpiece in the mud pie kitchen, make some music with the chimes, practice balancing on the rope bridge or use the wheelbarrows to make a hedgehog house with leaves.
Head to the bottom of the garden at Ormesby Hall and let the kids go wild in the natural play area. They can perform on the Willow Stage and challenge themselves on the rope walk, log stepping stones and balance see-saw.
