About us

The South Oxford Adventure Playground is a charity run by volunteers and play workers.  It is free and open to everyone.  SOAP is a place where children can play freely, meet new friends and have fun in a natural and physically challenging environment.  It offers an indoor and outdoor space where children can express themselves creatively and test themselves physically.  There isn’t a screen in sight! The outside space has a wooden fort, tower to climb,  zip wire, football pitch, wobbly bridge, tyre and rope swings, slides, den making area, fire pit, and trees to climb. Come along and discover the fun of SOAP!

SOAP aims to provide inclusive, exciting and adventurous play for children aged 7 and over, within a supervised playground. All children are welcome. Those under 7 must be accompanied by an adult. Playworkers are onsite after school and through the holidays to support and encourage children in their play.

Registration

All children 7-15 years old who wish to use the playground without their parent/carer – with or without disabilities – need a completed and upto date registration form signed by a parent/guardian. Registration is free! Download the registration form

Open access
Children 7 years and over are welcome at SOAP without a parent/carer, when playworkers are on site. Please note that SOAP is an open access playground and children are free to enter and go as they choose. SOAP signs children in when they arrive and signs them out when they leave. SOAP cannot be responsible for children if they decide to leave the playground. At SOAP children can decide for themselves what they do (within reasonable boundaries) and control their own play. All children must be registered with SOAP before they can use the playground.

Please note: this is not a childcare service.

Playworkers
The Playworkers are an experienced team dedicated to enabling quality play among children visiting SOAP. All playworkers have the skills and experience to work with children and young people. They are on hand to help, and keep children stimulated and safe while at the playground.  If you have any questions or difficulties please feel free to approach them.
