There’s an excellent large free play area in Wootton, Bedfordshire. My sons were in a holiday club in nearby Cranfield in April 2021 so we decided to take a short drive from there to try it out. This is one of many reviews of fun free parks and play areas in and around Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire you can find on this website.
Where is Wootton park in Bedfordshire?
The play area in Wootton is quite hidden from view from the road, but it’s relatively easy to find. Drive to the village hall. It’s behind there. There are gates which were open when we arrived. We drove down there to a large free car park. The address is 10 Church Rd, Wootton, Bedford MK43 9EU. The postcode took us just past the village hall so look out for it when you arrive – we had to turn back on ourselves when we realised we’d gone past it. Wootton is about 20 mins in the car from where we live in Milton Keynes.
What’s the play area in Wootton, Bedfordshire like?
The play area in Wootton, Bedfordshire is well worth a visit if you have children of a variety of ages. It’s gated with lots of different play equipment. It’s particularly good if you have toddlers with an exciting climbing frame (my five year old was too big for it), a smaller climbing frame and a bus and a car. There’s also a ground trampoline, and baby swings. For slightly older children there’s a good climbing frame, swings, nest swing, spinning cup thing, skate park and a basketball court. It’s all brightly coloured. The play area is well designed with lots of space to run around and have fun. It can often be difficult to find parks suitable for toddlers and this is definitely one to put on your list. There is an accessible roundabout although it was quite stiff to push. There was still enough for my children aged five and seven to enjoy. We didn’t take scooters on the day we visited, but we had a look at the skate park whilst we were there. It’s quite a deep skate park and the children using it were older than mine and very talented on their skateboards. It looked like a great facility but more one for skateboards as the ramps were quite high. I’d say if you only have toddlers then it’s worth travelling, or if you have children of mixed ages and you’re looking for somewhere to take all of them then it’s also good.
Can you recommend any other good parks for toddlers?
