Glendoick Play

Glendoick Play is new child friendly zone which has been created with little ones of all abilities in mind.  

New! Glendoick SoftPlay opened on Saturday 24th March 2018! 

It is suitable for babies up to 2 years old and children from 2 to 8 years. 

The younger play area incorporates a rocker and softplay shapes and caters for 2 babies up to 2 years old. The front of the baby area is enclosed by a low soft wall, which will not only help to keep both the children and equipment inside the area but also act as a seat for parents/carers to sit on as they interact with their children at play inside the area. The top of the low soft wall incorporates three tactile play panels designed to help the children to explore their sense of touch. The side and rear walls are fitted with a wall pad and the rear pad incorporates six fiddly fastenings panels to help the children to develop their finger dexterity. 

The centrepiece of the softplay area is the themed softplay rocker for the children to ride on as they play their imaginary games. The rest of the area is made up of a selection of softplay shapes for the children to climb around on, or build with. These shapes include three lettered cubes, which will help them to learn to spell simple words and two dice to help them with their numeracy skills.

The main play frame has been designed to cater for a further 13 children from 2 to 8 years old.There are two entrances into the main play frame giving the children a choice about which activity they want to tackle first. Inside the area they will find a biff bag to bash, a wedge squeeze to clamber through the middle of, a wavy walk to weave in and out of and a set of hanging snakes to push past.

There are two ways up to the upper level: the angled log climb, which everyone can use or the tricky zig zag padded climb for the older, more agile children. On the upper level the children will find two net crawls to scramble across where they can look down through the safety netting to see their friends below and a crawl tube with a window in the middle where they can stop to look out and wave to their parents/carers in the seating area below. The access to the top of the open spiral slide is also on this level. The children can use the open spiral slide to spin them, laughing and screaming, back down to the padded floor on the ground level.


Consideration has been taken to offer a variety equipment, selected to challenge the children, whatever their age, in as many ways as possible i.e. balancing, sliding, crawling and climbing. The layout of the equipment encourages both physical and imaginative play and promotes a flow of children around, through, under and over the various obstacles.

Enjoy!
