The Secret Garden (in St Clement's Churchyard), Bournemouth

Thursday, 12th Nov - Thursday, 10th Dec


By popular demand we are offering Outdoor Stay & Play for under 5s in Boscombe.  

Come dressed for the weather; we'll be outdoors! Let your little ones play and explore in a safe and stimulating outdoor setting in this new collaboration between Grounded Community and Real Playful. 

Local parent and founder of Real Playful, Adele trained as a Playworker in 2010 and has specialised in inclusive outdoor play in urban environments. Adele advocates for unstructured, child-led free play for all children. She believes in making public spaces safe and engaging for community play. 

Booking - book a ticket for each adult and each child (with their age) attending so we can monitor numbers. There is no set fee to attend but we'd welcome a donation of £5 per family if you can afford it; there will be an anonymous donations tin.

Please note our WC is not wheelchair accessible - An accessible toilet can be arranged nearby to RADAR Key holders - please email [email protected]if you are a RADAR key holder

Hot drinks will be available. Donations greatly received :)
