Offering an adventurous, inclusive, fun and safe place for children



We run an “Open-Access” Adventure Playground, Grow - Cook - Eat initiative as well as food growing allotments (and a Community Garden). Everything we do is aimed at providing a place where children from the Shadwell community can develop, play, grow, interact and mix.

Post Covid we recognise that the needs of our local community has changed where families and parents are looking for safe places for their children to play. Our target age and priority is 8 - 15 yrs, However we do welcome families with younger children, Please bear in mind that younger children will be the responsibility of the parent / carer.

"Play is an essential part of a child's life and vital to their development.

It is the way children explore the world around them and develop and practice their skills.


It is essential for physical, emotional and spiritual growth, for intellectual and emotional development, and acquiring social and behavioural skills."

                         Easter Holidays !!!

Glamis APG will be open for Easter from Monday 3rd - Friday 14th April 11:30 - 5pm, (we will be closed on 7th & 10th April). Come and enjoy our open access adventure play space, alongside candle making, lip balm & slime making. 

Plant, grow & eat seasonal fruit & veg with our gardener on the 5th & 13th.

Tame the beast with Natterjack's fire survival skills & snacks on 6th & 14th.

Have your dream cartoon/marvel character, or anything you fancy painted by a professional face painter.

We finish up with a Bouncing Castle Friday on the 14th - £5 all day for a family of 2 or 50p per child. Each go will last 10 mins.

Don't forget every child admitted will receive a hot lunch, beverages & snacks.




  We now have funding to open on Wednesdays, 4 - 5:30pm, 5 - 15 yrs for SEN sessions. This space is for Y/P's with SEN's to play and explore in safety while being entertained and supervised by trained Playworkers. Parents can have a coffee while they interact, share local information  and have some respite.

This will be a pilot scheme for 1 year to see if further SEN sessions are needed in our local community. 


These sessions are specifically for young people with SEN's. Please remember to register on-line prior to attending the site.


We are an all inclusive open access facility and our target age is 8 - 15yrs.

Because of varying community needs we will soon be opening on Thursdays just for 8 - 15 yrs, with no parents or carers permitted. Fridays and Saturdays will be as normal. We expect to make this change after the Easter Holidays on Thursday 20th April.  


Our term times opening hours are:

Thursdays and Fridays - 3.30 to 6.30 pm

Saturdays - 11.30 am to 5 pm

Please register your child before attending Glamis.

 Remember that appropriate footwear is absolutely necessary, no open toe or open 

heeled shoes.

NOTE: Admission into Glamis maybe refused if correct footwear is not worn

There is no need to book. Children can just arrive at the playground to play, though they need to be registered if they haven't registered before.


 You may not know that we have recently refurbished the kitchen which leaves us with an entirely new multi-purposed inside space.

If you are looking to promote wellness within the community and need an inside or space for hire, please get in touch for attractive rates:
