Upton Country Park Adventure Play

Updated 16th October 2019

The Project

Following a successful Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) application submitted by the Friends of Upton Country Park a new adventure play area is coming soon.

The project aims to provide an exciting new destination play space for Upton Country Park, providing a unique, free experience for visitors that will stimulate creative play with a strong focus on natural, heritage and environmental themes. The play space will be challenging, educational and inclusive, using bespoke timber equipment.

Opening for October Half Term!

Work started on 23rd September 2019 and was due to take about 6 weeks; we’re pleased to say it is all going according to plan, despite the wet weather, and we aim to open at the start of October half term break – on Saturday 26th October.
