Our family sessions are open to all members to drop in at all three locations. Family sessions are suitable for our members up to 18 years old. 

Rain or shine, our playgrounds offer everything from assault courses and bikes, sand and water play, to dress-up, crafts and baking - something for everyone.

Siblings are welcome and parents have a chance to grab a coffee and chat with friends, safe in the knowledge your children are in good hands.

There is no need to book for any of our family sessions.
