The urge to play is natural. The most obvious reason that play is important is because it makes us happy but it also contributes to children’s mental and physical development.

At Dales Farm we strongly believe that every child should feel included in play, whatever their ability. We have therefore created a safe, enclosed play area where every child will be able to find something to explore and have fun on, whilst developing their creativity and confidence. Some equipment is wheelchair accessible, such as our roundabout and accessible activity play centre. We also have a basket swing, designed like a bird’s nest, for those needing a little more support on a swing. Therefore, there should be something for everyone to enjoy!

Our play area is included with your ticket price to Dales Farm and is suitable for children aged 2 and up.

You are welcome to bring a picnic to eat at one of our picnic tables, one of which has been adapted for wheelchair use. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in the park or farm area.

Your children are your responsibility whilst using the play area, so please supervise them carefully as they run, jump, climb and explore!
