Tumbling Bay Playground

by Sally Foster (follow)
Escape the city and immerse the children in a beautiful natural environment

Kids of all ages will love the uniqueness of Tumbling Bay Playground. It is located in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford. Queen Elizabeth Park is a joy for nature lovers, with 111 acres of open space which includes gardens full of flowering plants, broad meadows and intricate wetlands.

Tumbling Bay Playground is just one facets of Queen Elizabeth Park and is a wonderful play area. It has many exciting play areas, such as wobbly bridges, rock pools, tree houses, climbing walls, sand pit, swings and slides. It is in the north of the park.

Unlike many playgrounds, Tumbling Bay is very back to nature, and has been built so enhance the natural environment. This encourages children to use their imagination to play and to allow nature to add an element of uniqueness to their play.

After having a wonderful time at Tumbling Bay, kids can also head to the Pleasure Gardens Play Areas, in the south of the park. There is a huge rocks, climbing frames, slides and swings, so it is perfect for kids that love to climb and are particularly adventurous. There is also a giant sand pit.

The climbing wall in particular is a big hit with the kids. It can be a little nerve wracking for parents to watch, but kids will love to challenge themselves. All that climbing will also build up a sweat, so kids can cool down in the waterworks fountain which is a labyrinth of computer-controlled walls of water operating in the summer months.
