Adventure playgrounds

Adventure playgrounds are reopening from the 20 July with protective measures in place to ensure that they are as safe as possible.

Islington has 12 adventure playgrounds which are safe, welcoming, fun and free for children aged 6 and up. They give children the opportunity to safely socialise with others outside their household, burn off energy and boost their physical and emotional health.


To keep children and families as safe as possible children will be allocated into social bubbles, therefore booking needs to be made in advance to secure a place. Allocated places will be for one or two weeks depending on the playground. Priority places can be booked for vulnerable children by referral.
