Adventure Play

Adventure Play is a unique, hand-crafted adventure playground at Windsor Great Park. Hidden within the woodland next to The Savill Garden, you’ll discover a fascinating world of walkways, slides, sculptures and treehouses. 

But this is not just for the children. 

Whether they want to climb among the trees or explore the amazing giant acorns, you can be right there, feeding their imagination and watching their confidence grow. Because this is play like you remember it – getting close to nature, challenging the body and stimulating the senses. 

All are welcome, whatever their age, need or ability.

How adventurous are you?

We’ve all got a little bit of adventure in us. Visit, and at every turn you will discover something for everyone to enjoy.

Adventure Play is suitable for children from 2 to 12 years, with the only limit being their own sense of adventure.

Children can move freely through all areas of Adventure Play, but if you are unsure on what level of adventure to have, our Windsor Great Park mouse, squirrel and owl can help you and those with you to decide together.

Find out more about dog walking in Windsor Great Park.

Expected behaviour for assistance dogs and emotional support dogs
Assistance dogs

Assistance dogs are highly trained to:

  • not jump up
  • not wander freely
  • sit or lie down at their owners feet
  • bark only when alerting their handler to an emergency
Emotional support dogs

We would expect a similar degree of behaviour for emotional support dogs. Should your companion become uncomfortable in the space, or not be behaving appropriately around other visitors, we ask that you remove them from the Building or Adventure Play to allow them to regain their calm and focus before being re-admitted. This may also help them to more quickly respond to your needs.

If possible, arrangements can also be made for you to return on a separate occasion without your emotional support dog.
