Outdoor Adventure Playground
The Carnfunnock adventure playground offers a range of challenging and exciting equipment for toddlers to 12 year olds, many of which are also suitable for children with special needs.
For the under 5s, there is a dedicated play area with dolphin ‘turfrider’ spring rockers; saddle spinners; see saw, swings; all alongside a ‘toddlertown’ multi activity play unit and sensory play centre, both with fun interactive panels.

Over 5s can also enjoy the centerpiece of the play area, an impressive tower lighthouse, with its three tunnel slides, standing tall to warn ships of the climbing rocks nearby.

The playground is fully enclosed with a ‘wetpour’ rubber safety surfacing throughout and CCTV coverage to ensure a safe environment for adventurous play. All children must however be accompanied by a supervising adult.
