Playday at Roadford Lake

7th August 2019 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm

Celebrate National Playday at Roadford Lake

On Wednesday 7 August, come along to Roadford Lake to celebrate National Playday! The day is an amazing number of events across the UK which enable children, young people, their families and communities to get out and play, celebrate play, and campaign for play.

At Roadford Lake, Holly Collingham (countryside warden) will be running exploration walks at 10.30am and 2.00pm, starting from the café and heading out towards the sundial. En route, we will be looking at all our lovely bugs, butterflies and other wildlife. Each session will last for about an hour. We’d also love for everyone to come along with a picnic and a teddy bear to enjoy refreshments overlooking the lake. The cafe will also be open, where you will find ice cream, drinks and other lovely treats.

Children will also be able to enjoy our small existing play area and you’ll be able to find out about our exciting plans to develop our play area in the near future.

All welcome on the walks, or just come along for a picnic and a play overlooking Roadford Lake.

The event is free to attend, although there is a small car parking fee (£2 for 2 hours, £4 all day). Please pre-book on to the session you would like to attend using the button below (under ‘Book now’, select your time slot).

National Playday started as a few events in 1987 in London. The initiative went national in 1991 and is now the biggest celebration of children’s play in the UK.
