Baltic Street Adventure Playground

Baltic Street Adventure Playground

Baltic Street Adventure Playground is supervised adventure playground for children from 6 to 12 years. Younger children are welcome with a carer or guardian. It is free to enter, children are free to come and go, and free to play as they choose.

Baltic Street is child-led. The children choose what to do and can get involved in everything from the day-to-day management to the development of the site. Specially trained play workers keep children safe, cook food on the campfire and support them to pursue their own play, from make-believe to construction projects.
