Evesham Adventure Playground
Project Category: Registered charity
EVESHAM ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND provides a safe, supervised playspace for children and families based on its one acre site with large self-build playstructures, mud kitchen,tree house, bare foot walk and community cafe and building. We try to respond to the needs of our community by providing programmes that support children and families in need. We are open after school and during all school holidays providing a care scheme for parents that work, who are in training or need some respite care. We also provide an ‘open access’ scheme for local children and families where they can come and play for free.We re-cycle materials for use on our playground, grow our own food, collect and give away produce to families that would have gone to landfill, provide free meals to all that come to play, collect used clothing for our rag bag scheme, and are developing a DIY water saving project, and solar heating.
For many of the children attending our playground, this is the only space where they can ‘have a go’ without the fear of failure. Our philosophy is ‘ how can we do that’, rather than ‘this can’t be done’. Children are supported to design and build their own playstructures , are given lots of ‘loose parts’ to create their spaces, have designed and built large carnival puppets, tinker with lawnmower engines and cook and grow food.
