Gaydon Meadow Playground
A brand new wooden playground
We've found another great park to share with you. One of our lovely followers, Sophie, recommended this newly developed park to us so we went to check it out.
We are so lucky that we have a ton of great parks locally and we're loving exploring them.
This time we visited the park in Gaydon, near Kineton. Sophie didn't have a postcode but explained roughly where it was so we went on a bit of a hunt. The only details we had was that it was off Church Lane, down a public footpath.
Surprisingly, we found it very easily. It is absolutely brand new, and we think that's it's still being developed as it doesn't look quite finished.
When we arrived, there was only one other family in the park. Two older boys arrived a little later on but we were very lucky that it was so quiet.
The whole park has a very eco look about it as it's all wooden. It reminded us very much of Center Parcs.
They have tried to cater for all ages but I would say that there's more for children aged 3+ (if they are confident climbers). Younger children would be ok on the equipment but would need support.
- Tiny toddler Climbing Frame with slide.
- Toddler Swings

- Circular Net Swing
- Climbing Frame with climbing walls, rope bridge, and metal tunnel slide.
- Benches and Picnic Benches
Things to Watch Out For
- The slope up to the zip wire is steep and the zip wire is high to get onto for younger ones - they will need support.
- the zip wire is also very fast so make sure they hold on tight.
- There are lots of mounds of soil around so watch out for little ones tripping over.
- The park isn't fenced in but it's a little walk from the main gate.
There are no toilets.
There are a couple of picnic benches in the park. The park is in field so you could take a picnic blanket.
Parking was fine for us but it's in the middle of the village by the church and it very limited. At busier times I imagine that it would be more difficult. Please be mindful of residents and park responsibly if you visit.
The park is good and has an eco feel to it. It looks lovely being all wooden.
The park is behind the Church off Church Lane.
Look out for the Public Footpath sign.
