Children's play area at Cannock Chase

Fun for all the family

Cannock Chase Forest is renowned locally for its free play facilities. 

Scramble, slide and swing your way around our play area. Venture along the Ladyhill Trail to enter a fairytale of your own. Keep a lookout for the fairy trees and Gruffalo sculpture. Climb on top of our Play House and see what you can spot from the top. Ride around the Pedal and Play Trail to climb, balance and imagine you're running your own bike repair shop. 

If you all feel creative and want to test your older children, then set them a challenge in the shelter-building area which is set underneath our towering pine trees.

Alternatively, bring a ball of any size or shape for a kick about in our large grassy clearing and picnic area.
