I wasn’t going to start sharing my park posts just yet because I thought it was a bit early but 1) This is an amazing park 2) It has that really soft sponge-like flooring so it doesn’t get muddy. If it’s dry on the day then you’re good to go.
I found this park by a random google maps spot – it’s fairly obvious on the map and I had to check it out. We accessed it via Whittingham Avenue, and drove past a lovely little playground but I knew there was more to come….
It looks like you’re going to wrong way because you come to a dead end and it is a bit hidden but, trust me, it’s there. There is a little car park just off of Cruickshank Drive. The playground is set within a larger green space and it looks like it’s quite popular with dog walkers.
This park is soooooo cool. It’s on MoD land / maintained by the MoD according to the sign so it’s suitably themed. It’s a big park with plenty of seating so you can easily set up camp there for a while. There are two helicopter play frames – the blue one is for older kids and the red one is for younger ones. The blue play frame has to be one of my favourites, it’s so imaginative. There’s also swings, see-saw, roundabout thingy, climbing net, stepping stones and more.
The equipment is well maintained and clean (helped by the flooring). It’s really well thought out and the equipment is good for a wide range of ages. There’s a sports court too, but it’s not locked so you don’t need to book it.
Have a look at all of the photos in this video but I think we’re going to be spending a LOT of time here over the summer – and I don’t think it’s just the kids that are going to be playing on that frame!
If you live locally and know the “proper” name for this park then please let me know. Also, it’s on the border between Halton and Wendover, just off the new estate. I’m not 100% sure of the boundaries so if I’ve described the park as being on Halton Camp because that’s what Google Maps says. If this is wrong please let me know and I’ll amend it. Thank you.
