Adventure playgrounds

Play is an important part of every child’s development and essential both to their health and happiness.

Islington’s adventure playgrounds will be open from March 2021 for outdoor play sessions with social distancing and other Covid secure measures in place to ensure the safety of children, families and staff.

Islington has 12 adventure playgrounds, which are safe, welcoming and fun 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. Read our guide to Islington Adventure Playgrounds.

Adventure playgrounds are free to access and there is no booking required, but children will need to register.

There will be a limit of how many children can be on the playground at any one time to ensure compliance with the government guidelines.
