Mountains of climbing, sliding, water and more!
Follow the children’s trail through the trees... swing, slide, splash and climb...
but most of all, enjoy playing in this amazing mountain forest!
Nine fantastic play areas
Consisting of nine separate play areas linked by a 600m-long trail, the free to play Whinlatter WildPlay trail is a unique attraction for children.
Test your engineering skills on the Archimedes Screws and draw water from the stream or work with friends to move gravel using the pulleys and shoots in the gravel pit. Try out the climbing wall and giant timber climbing frame or fly through the air on the log swing. For the younger children, visit the fairy kingdom with its secret path and hidden carvings.
