Inspiring outdoor adventure play! If you are visiting Wild Meadow with Children, a trip to WildRootz at Pensthorpe is highly recommended!
Children with energy to burn will relish the challenge presented by the impressive outdoor eco-play area, and can push themselves physically whilst boosting confidence and having fun by scaling 30ft towers, swinging from zip-wires, venturing into underground tunnels and flying down twisty, worm-like slides. The high-quality play equipment is both innovative and challenging in equal measure. Or simply kick off your shoes and paddle barefoot through the Wildrootz stream – a firm favourite with lots of visitors!
Pensthorpe is a natural home for many species of birds, mammals, invertebrates and plants. The diverse range of priority habitats together create a stunning rich landscape which Pensthorpe Conservation Trust manages for wildlife.
