Attraction details
Owner description: Abbotsbury Playground is maintained and insured by volunteers. A group of local people came together to form a group in 2006 working tirelessly hard to turn a field into the beautiful playground it is today. The playground was made possible through the kind donations of the community, Chesil Bank Parish Council, Dorset Community Action (Kris Hallett) Awards for all, Co operative Community Fund, The Big Lottery Community Spaces Grant and the hard work of its committee members who successfully applied for these grants.We have volunteers who cut the grass, empty the bins and ensure the playground is perfect! We have visitors who also visit, play and keep the playground tidy and we would like to thank you all for this! Please feel free to leave us a review, we'd love to hear your thoughts on your trip!

Perfect playground with a view of St Catherines Chapel. We had a meal at The Ilchester Arms with family and couple of little ones, and it was lovely to find the playground hidden around the corner! It looks brand new, and there's even a zip wire. It's lovely to see it so well looked after.

This was a hidden gem! Just off Hannah's lane (park in the main through road, West street) and walk down. You will never guess that there was a big old playground nearby. It's a country lane out of the little village towards the chapel on the hill. Then in the bend: taaadaaa! A mega dream for any 2 - 10 year old: swings as varied as you can imagine, slides of every kids. It's a kids paradise and our two (22 month old and 3 year old) had a blast. The views are great and if the weather is predicted to be better: pack a picnic.

Lots of play features for all ages, including a wonderful tractor climbing frame, various swings, slides and a zip wire. Lots of seating and picnic tables with some undercover from the sunshine.

We walked up a hill to St Catherine's Church at Abbotsbury, and saw this fantastic hidden away playground, so decided to try and find it. It is the BEST playground I have seen, everything is new, maintained, clean, and the place is empty. you have to park on the main road and walk to it (Not far), but worth searching out if you have children.

WOW! I've never seen such a well looked after playground. Its amazing - so many different things for the children to do and SO clean. Nothing is damaged, in face it looks brand new! Boys really enjoyed the zip wire.
