Maes Chwarae Antur | Adventure Playground

Welcome to Wales' oldest and largest adventure playground! Opened in 1978, we're still championing children's self-directed play, and providing a safe space for our community.

Our adventure playground is staffed by a multi-disciplined team who either have, or who are working towards, a Playwork and/or Youth Work qualification. You can get to know the staff by visiting our our Team page.
