New adventure playground opens in York

A new adventure playground opened in York today (Wednesday).

York Stadium Leisure Complex opened the play park to provide visiting children with another activity to do.

Free to access and open during the day, all year round, the adventure park is suitable for children, from toddlers to teenagers.

The park has a host of features ranging from climbing apparatus, slides and walkways as well as all-weather and soft surfaces. It also has seats for parents and caregivers and lockable doors.

Also in the same area is an outdoor fitness area for leisure center guests. It can be adapted for a variety of purposes, including outdoor fitness classes, such as circuits, Buggy-a-cise and high-intensity training classes, as well as breakout areas in vacation clubs for children.
