Hackney Playground has recently achieved their Quality in Play accreditation from Play England. This accreditation acknowledges that we are providing a good play experience for disabled children and young people. We are pleased to have this recognition and look forward to building on this recognition and further developing the play experience on the playground.
KAPH is an Adventure Playground for Children and Young People aged 5 – 19. We provide the opportunity for stimulating, inclusive play on a closed access site. The Playground is situated next to the Lea Valley Nature Reserve, behind Springfield Park. It’s an accessible green space within an urban environment, where children can freely choose their play in a setting that is supportive of their requirements.
Priority is given to disabled children and young people and their siblings, however, young people within the age range living in the surrounding community are welcome.
Children must be registered to attend.
