About this service

Our playgrounds are hidden gems, tucked away in secure, closed-access sites where children can let their imaginations run wild.

We have a treasure trove of equipment – soft play, zip wires, sensory rooms, nest swings, climbing frames, treehouses, bikes, and trailers. And our playground is securely fenced, creating a safe space where children can roam freely, explore, and just be themselves.

With our qualified and trained staff by their side, children using the playground get equal access to all the fun. It’s child-led and child-centred, meaning they take the reins and decide when, how, and what they want to play with. This sense of ownership empowers them to make choices, build friendships, and, most importantly, have lots of fun!

So come down and join us for an adventure you won’t find anywhere else.

“I have known Kids Hackney Adventure Playground for many years. The staff team at the playground are experienced, qualified, and professional, and have a great commitment to providing play opportunities that are mostly unavailable elsewhere for these children. The playground is consistently well run and managed, with a large pool of part-time staff and volunteers who are dedicated to their work and passionate about providing services that many mainstream children would take for granted.”
Nick Jackson, former Play Development Manager of Young Hackney
