Messy Play in the Park

Messy Play in the Park 2019 is back!

We are delighted to be back for our third year at the Wonderful Waterlow Park hidden lawn as well as Whittington Parks’ early years' hub garden. This year we'll have favourites such as padding pools filled with water, balls and inflatables, paint and splat zones, trays filled with edibles, the 30ft slip and slide with all the water play toys alongside lots of new and exciting messy, sensory and ice & water-based activities for all to enjoy!

If this isn’t enough why not join others for a picnic in the park? The Whittington park cafe is providing freshly made lunches for children and adults to pre-order. Our favourite is the 'Buddah Bowl’ of roast broccoli, sweet potato, veg fritter, smoked black beans, salsa avocado, cherry tomatoes & mushrooms, yum. These will be delivered at the end of your session, so all you need to do is collect from the sign posted pick up point and go eat. Don't forget your picnic blanket!
