I love finding new places that are local to us, and a couple of people had mentioned Holly Hill Play Area next to the Holly Hill Leisure Centre. The girls have their swimming lessons here each week but we hadn’t paid it much attention!
Sometimes it’s nice just to pop somewhere that is local to you and let the kids run around. Most of our dog walks end up being somewhere muddy but Holly Hill Play Area isn’t muddy at all and has rubber flooring areas and paths added to it.
It’s easy to find as it is right next to the Holly Hill Leisure Centre, which is right opposite Holly Hill where we visited a few months ago. You could combine both and have a woodland walk first and a play in the park after.
Plenty of parking and a large open field, which Gus the dog ran around. However they have left the park open with no railings and gates to stop dogs running in. So be aware of this if you have a dog with you.
There are quite a few different things for them to do in the park, with a smaller kids area and larger kids. Musical items to hit, puzzles to solve and plenty to climb on for all ages.
I love how they have used a lot of natural products in this play area, with even the main sculpture being a tree…….now is that his roots on the top of his head?!
I don’t think any park is good without a zipline installed!!
Nice big climbing frame to give them a challenge, with a fast slide down!
This rope swing is a lot smaller than the one they usually play on at Manor Farm however still good fun.
This sew saw kept them busy for quite a while, think it is great that it is a standing up one instead.
You can see the openness of this field here, mine are fine now, but you have to keep your eyes on the little ones. I think when my twins were younger I would have struggled to bring them here. I love a park that they can be free to run around in, however I can stay by the gate to stop any runners!!
If your local have you visited Holly Hill Park, or even knew it was there?
