We are striving to keep the playground open for play sessions on Tuesdays Thursdays and Fridays after school and on Saturday afternoons. The community building is closed to the public during these times, except for access to the toilet facilities. Visitor numbers will be limited, and we ask that visitors register with us as they arrive. We ask visitors to observe social distancing at the playground.
Children and young people love the playground because of its interesting and exciting spaces and play equipment, including sand play, tunnel side, maypole swing and water pump. It is also popular with parents who see it as a safe place, staffed by skilled play workers, with toilet facilities and refreshments available. In term time it is open 3 afternoons a week and it’s free! Staff provide a range of activities for children of all ages including crafts, cooking and games. Over 8 year olds’ can play in the playground without parental supervision.

2018 was the second year of running Tea at Adventures over the summer holidays. The project is part of a city wide scheme, funded by Sheffield City Council. Activities and food costs for families can rise significantly in the summer when children are out of school, the project aims to ease that burden by bringing children and families together to eat and play over the 6 weeks holidays. Staff and volunteers worked together to prepare daily nutritious meals 5 days a week for children and families attending the Playground. All meals included at least three vegetables and everything was prepared from scratch in the kitchen. Over the holidays 938 people registered and ate at Tea at Adventures, with a 3166 meals served! A large number of local families attended and ate with us regularly and made eating at Tea at Adventures apart of their summer holiday routine.
