We went to this nice playground after our Windrush Path Mosaic Trail in Standlake, Witney.
The first thing you come across is the climbing rock/ boulder in the middle of the field. I have never seen anything like it. Basically, there is a huge rock over a crash pad (bouldering mat), which looked pretty natural but I think it is a well made artificial rock with small spaces/ steps for climbing without a rope. I loved the concept. Ay could not manage apart from a few steps but it would make for an amazing first experience for “outdoor rock climbing”.
The play area is fenced and the combination of wooden and metal equipment, which is partly under the trees, giving the whole place a beautify rustic appearance. It is mostly grass but there are some wooden chips near the bigger structures. The bigger children wooden climbing structure has a wobbly bridge/ climbing ropes and slide and the toddlers had their own smaller climbing frame. The square shaped obstacle course with chain, monkey bars, wooden logs and tyres was pretty good too.
In addition, there are swings, sit in roundabout, springers, a small car and a wooden tunnel/cabin for imaginative play, balancing beam and sit in sea saw. There is also a small mound for climbing for the little ones.
The big field also had basketball and tennis courts as well as football poles. There were two small downhill paths, like a skate area, but without an uphill. I tcan imagine two cyclists racing down, but I am not sure what is the purpose for it
