Homerton Grove Adventure Playground

Homerton Grove Adventure Playground, Wardle Street, London, E9 6BX; located opposite Homerton Hospital.

Homerton Grove Adventure Playground is a free play and youth service for children and young people in Hackney. It’s a place where children and young people can come and just be themselves, with lots of opportunities to run, jump, scream, get dirty, make things, challenge themselves, build dens, make the space theirs and find ways to play with other children and young people.

The playground and its activities are designed for children aged 6-15 years old. Under 6’s are welcome if supervised by an adult.

The playground is open access so it is free. The gates remain open during opening hours and children can come and go as they please.

The playground is open all year round in all weathers.
