From Spring 2019 Play Wild will be operating from two sites
The first is Our permanent base is at Wood Lane Quarry (Due to open soon) nestled in the foot of Weston Woods. This is the perfect space for Forest School sessions and outdoor learning and can be used as a base to explore the wider woods. The quarry is fenced and secure for groups of children to visit and will host educational sessions for all ages, workshops and small events. There is even a small stage area to perform on and lots of space to make shelters, build fires and hunt for wildlife.
The Quarry is well hidden but is only a few hundred metres from a main road where on road parking is available and a main bus route runs. Wood Lane is off Bristol Road Lower (BS23 2TR). Please do not park on Wood Lane. Access from the road is initially tarmacked but becomes uneven and cobbled over the last few meters. The ground within the quarry is also uneven due to the nature of the site and may not be suitable for wheelchair users, pushchairs or those who find uneven ground a challenge.
Our second site is on Weston-siper-Mare seafront at the South end of Beach Lawns. In just under 2 acres there is plenty of grassed open space with a variety of large hollow bushes to explore and small trees to climb. It is fenced from the road and the seafront and offers a safe and exciting space for children (and grown-ups) to explore. Activities range from arts and crafts to bug hunts, Tree Climbing and balancing to mud kitchens and lots in between.
The seafront site can accommodate large groups of children and can be used as a base to explore the beach. The seafront site is in the old putting green, if you are looking at the sea we are to the far left of Beach Lawns. It is a short walk from town, on a main bus route and has ample space for coaches and mini buses to drop off as well as free on street parking nearby. Access is flat and paved.
If you are interested in visiting one of our sites with your class or group,
