Grow Wild

Grow Wild is our natural adventure playground built specially for climbing, sliding, hopping, jumping and exploring.

It's open for regular weekday and weekend drop-in sessions and can also be hired for private parties.

Get Outside!

Nestled in an enclosed area behind The Lloyd Park Centre, Grow Wild is an opportunity for children aged 12 and under to learn about our natural environment, take managed risks and have fun too.

Tunnel slides, water play, rope bridges, insect houses, and natural musical instruments are just some of the features we have in our Grow Wild space. Come and play.

"If you love the sound of bees and birds and faraway planes over your head as you play and explore, and love the smell of the rain on wet stones, and the feel of sun on your back as you paint wood and examine bugs close up - Grow Wild is a place for you."

Chris Rowley, Grow Wild Manager

Ten children from Hillyfield Academy’s Autism Spectrum Provision have been attending monthly play sessions at Grow Wild since last year.

“The trips have proved extremely popular with the children and have been invaluable opportunities to support their development in a range of critical skills.”
