Children can enjoy climbing on foresters’ ‘machinery’, the Pirate Ship and many other items. Two new pieces of accessible play equipment, a wheelspin and nest swing, have been installed to enable children with disabilities to enjoy the playground.

3D Maze

Exploring the maze at Alice Holt For even more adventure on a forestry theme visit our 3D maze, based on the old forester’s sawmill.


Its ladders, passages and winding corridors are spread over 4 floors. Views over the forest and a little playhouse greet you at the top.


Children playing on Timberline at Alice Holt Timberline is ideal for older children. It offers a circuit of different challenges to overcome, from climbing wall to scramble net, and balancing beam to tunnel ... but can you make it to the end of the course without falling off?

Habitat Trail

Boy peeping out of owl on Habitat Trail at Alice Holt Journey further into the forest and you will be greeted by an amazing array of forest creatures.
Climb a spiral staircase inside a tree trunk, home of the woodpecker; run up an owl's back and see the forest through his eyes, find a bridge guarded by snakes and climb over a bat and moth.
The final area on the route is now open and the network of tunnels gives you the chance to feel like a rabbit in a warren or a badger in a sett.
