 SOAP is closed for winter from 26th October 2018.  Watch website for opening time in Spring 2019


Come and join the fun, meet new friends, be outdoors, and be fit for play… rain or shine!

Entrance is free, activities are free, and we welcome everyone!

We welcome donations too!

**We wish SOAP was open all the time, but we hire it out at the weekend for private use.  This enables us to keep it free for everyone, pay our play workers and look after the equipment. 

You can book SOAP for your own private party during the weekend,and know that every penny goes back into the playground!

 Thank you for your understanding. 

SOAP is a charity run entirely by local volunteers.  We promote outdoor, active, inclusive play because it’s fun and good for you.  We believe that all children regardless of background should have access to exciting outdoor play opportunities.  If you have any ideas or would like to volunteer to help raise funds, please contact us.

Please donate to help keep SOAP open to all. Donations fund playworkers, activities and upkeep at SOAP.


All children 7 yrs+ must register to stay unaccompanied at SOAP – New registration forms must be completed for 2018. SOAP is an open access playground and children can come and go as they choose.  We are not a registered childcare provider.  Registration forms are available at the bottom of this page.  PLEASE ENSURE SOAP HAS UP TO DATE INFORMATION FOR YOUR CHILD IF THEY ARE UNACCOMPANIED.

Looking for a party or meeting venue?  Are you a teacher?  Why not take your class outside for the day?
