Wellington Country Park is a great park for kids only half an hour or so from Marlow. There are loads of interesting attractions and things to keep children entertained for a full day. Its best enjoyed when the sun is shining (like anywhere!) but there is also an indoor soft play area.
Here’s some of the things you’ll find there:
Multiple adventure play areas
Slide, swing or climb your way around the adventure play areas and trails. A full assortment of play equipment including a giant zip wire and balancing beams.
Toddler play areas
There are a number of places within the park designed especially for toddlers.
Animal Farm and Petting Barn
Take a walk to the Animal Farm to visit all your favourite farmyard friends. You can see Shetland ponies, donkeys, sheep, chickens rabbits, pigs, goats, and Alpacas. You can also feed the goats and sheep.
Giant Jumping Pillow
Always a fave. This attraction has a height limit of 1.2m, so it is only available to smaller visitors
Snakes and Ladders
Climb any of the ladders to the top of the hill to see the beautiful views of the Park. Then, choose from a selection of slides and enjoy the thrill as you hurtle down.
Sand and Water Play and Diggers
Large sand pit and water play area.
Indoor Soft Play Area
Indoor play area designed for those aged 2 and under only.
