HAF- King Henry's Walk Adventure Playground

6-13 Years. Make sure you’ve got your binoculars and maps handy because we’re going to explore! Get ready to make an award-winning nature documentary of Islington’s very own wildlife. Why not hop on the wooden bus designed by our very own adventurers or sail the seas to your destination? Perhaps you’ll see some newts and toads along the way. Heading for dangerous waters? Then swing to safety, make an emergency zip wire escape through the plum and apple trees, or use the climbing wall to clamber out of harm’s way… And try not to take a wrong turn in the maze!

Local Offer

How will you support my child?

Inclusion is one of the core values of our Adventure Playgrounds. We work with children, parents/ carers and professionals to assess the individual needs of each child (EHC plan) and work together to ensure every child can access the adventure playgrounds we manage. All activities and play opportunities are inclusive and adapted to suit a child’s needs if necessary. Depending on their needs, we work with parents/carers and professionals to explore how we can access specialist support workers to work 1:1 or 1:4 if needed.
