Service description:
Goldhill Adventure Playground is the largest inclusive adventure playground in the city of Leciester and Leicestershire. It is a charity and can provide 1-1 support for users with additional needs to play within a mainstream setting.

The Goldhill Adventure Playground in Leicestershire is a great place for children between 5 and 19 years of age (with special needs) to spend a day playing. Families with children under 5 can also come, but the youngsters must be supervised at all times as they have not yet developed the skills to manage the playgrounds structures safely. Older children can climb, swing, crawl and run through the various climbing frames, equipment and playhouses that are located across the park’s grounds, as well as take part in engaging activities such as graffiti workshops.

Since half of this Leicester adventure playground is located outside, waterproofs are recommended for those days when the weather is less than perfect.

This children’s playground in Leicestershire is proud to be involved in several “Inclusion Projects”, which aim to aid the development of disabled children through the power of play.

There are adventure play staff on site who state:

"As professional play workers, we provide children with a broad range of exciting and creative play opportunities designed to help them develop their full potential. So that we can provide a high quality service, all our staff attend regular training and have achieved or are working towards a National Vocational Qualification in Playwork. Staff can easily be identified by their green shirts. Our staff are always willing to help. If you have any difficulties, please feel free to approach them."

Where possible the park tries to provide a service for children and adults with disabilities and this is achieved by working with parents who are free to offer advice, guidance and instructions on how to meet the child's needs.
