We want to enable children and their families to play and explore at Roadford Lake; linking play to the natural environment is important to us and is of great benefit to everyone’s health and well being. We now have plans for an exciting new play space at Roadford Lake, which you can find out about below.

Now more than ever, children and their families need great outdoor spaces to play, be free and to let their imagination run wild. We want to help people connect with the natural environment through play. We are now in the depths of planning and fundraising for a fantastic new play space. As the current offering was last updated in 2005, we feel now is this time for improvements and expansion. Find out more about our plans further down this page.
