ABOUT GWEALAN TOPS ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND
Gwealan Tops is a charity dedicated to promoting play for children, young people and the wider community. Play is an essential part of childhood and human development with immeasurable benefits. With support from the Big Lottery Fund, Gwealan Tops is now able to develop its long-held ambition to provide a staffed adventure playground all year round. This is the first and only one in Cornwall.
The site is a large area with some structures, wild areas and lots of space to roam, explore, experiment and create. Arts, crafts and imaginative opportunities are offered alongside campfires, building, sports and outdoor experiences with the main purpose of supporting free play. Children are able to take on challenges and manage risks gaining new skills, building confidence and increasing their understanding of themselves, others and the world around them.
The playground will now be open all year round 5 days a week – Autumn Term Time: Tuesday to Friday 3.30pm – 5.30pm (Tuesdays and Thursdays for 8’s and over) and Saturday 12pm – 4pm plus HOLIDAY TIMES: Monday to Friday 11am to 4pm, except Bank Holidays. There are many plans to continue to develop the opportunities for play and especially increase the challenges for young people aged 8 to 15 to get more out of the setting. Your ideas and suggestions are welcomed.
