Children's play area - adventurous facilities for all the family

The Government has advised that playgrounds can reopen this weekend and we know many of you want to come and play at Grizedale.

However, it is currently not possible or practical for us to meet the level of cleaning recommended in the Government guidelines to open this facility, so our play equipment has to stay closed. We will review the situation regularly and hope to re-open our play facilities as soon as we can


Our amazing adventure play area is great for kids to burn off any excess energy, with plenty to keep them occupied.

There are also picnic benches and undercover seating close by for a great day out in all weathers.
