Cornwallis Playground is closed until Monday, 9 August 2021.
Welcome to Cornwallis Adventure Playground – where we have our very own pirate ship. Are you ready to take charge at the helm of the ship or will you make a treacherous landlubber walk the plank? Swing, crawl and climb through the rigging with your fellow pirates, as you steer your ship to safety.
Feeling a bit peckish after that? Sit by the campfire, sing a few sea shanties, and make pirate pizza or jungle toast. And remember, if you find yourself stranded on a desert island, there are plenty of places at the playground to grow your own fruit and vegetables.
Don’t worry if you’re not the seafaring type. There’s lots more to do; from games on our multi-sports pitch to climbing walls. And if you’d prefer to hang out indoors, there’s a whole range of materials that you can make, build and experiment with.
Play is free for six to thirteen-year-olds and supervised by our Awesome playworkers – all you have to do is register and book to have fun. No matter what you enjoy doing, there are plenty of fun things for every adventurer to do at Cornwallis Adventure Playground.
Family play sessions - Temporarily suspended
Our fantastic family play sessions are packed with fun things for the whole family to do. Supported by qualified playworkers, you’ll be introduced to new and exciting play experiences. All sessions are free and open to all families in Islington every Saturday from 11.30pm – 1.30pm during school term time at Barnard, Cornwallis, King Henry’s Walk, Three Corners and Waterside Adventure Playgrounds. There’s no age restriction for children, as long as they’re accompanied by an adult – just be prepared to get messy! #FunComesFirst
