Calthorpe Community Garden

Funky new adventure playground

We would like to give a facelift to our one of our existing play structures to encourage children to explore, experiment and use their imagination. By adding a treehouse/lookout, swings, climbing ropes, ladders and seating, children can create their own fun 7 days a week.

Everyone will acknowledge that play is one of the most important ways for children to learn and develop. They can investigate and discover, test their theories, form relationships and develop social roles. Many inner city green spaces can be intimidating for children with large numbers of dogs and some anti-social people.


Outdoor play helps children get used to physical exercise while learning team building skills and cooperation. It enhances self esteem, in terms of exploring and testing boundaries and of taking and managing risks.
