Myton Green Playground - Leamington Spa

The Creme de la Creme of Parks

Yesterday, we visited Myton Green in Leamington Spa. It's a brand new playground (well 4, that we found, in fact) on a brand new housing development just off Europa Way.

I am going to start by saying that it's not the easiest of playgrounds to get to and there is NO parking on the housing development - it's all double yellow lines.

We walked in to the playgrounds from by the McDonalds Drive Thru on Queensway/Europa Way. We picked up the canal towpath which is accessed from the path that is adjacent to where the queue for the Drive Thru would be. As you pick up the path turn left and look out for The Waterside Inn on your right. Directly opposite is a walk way that takes you to the first park.

Park 1

This park was super quiet. There was only one other family there so this is where we stopped for our picnic lunch.

Age Group

This park is aimed at slightly older children. There is nothing suitable for toddlers.

Equipment

  • Wooden Climbing Structure with Climbing Net
  • See-Saw
  • Round Swing
  • Obstacle Beam
  • A couple of benches
  • Rubberised floor

Things to Watch Out For

The bins were overflowing so please take your litter home with you.

Toilets

There are no toilets

Picnic Area

A couple of benches which is where we ate our picnic

Park 2

Follow the path to the right. Keep going all the way around and you'll find the next park.

This park was again, really quiet. We had it to ourselves pretty much the whole time we were there.

There was a walk way that looked like it came from Myton Road way but we didn't go to investigate to don't take our word for it.

Park 4

This the the Creme de la Creme of parks. We have visited a lot of parks and this has to be one of, if not the best park that we've been to. We got caught in about 5 snow storms and not once did the boys want to leave. They had the best time.

You'll need to cross the road from the 'blue' park to get to this one but you can't miss it. The wooden treehouse structure is easily spotted.

There is something for every age group and the sand area was a massive hit - we've just got to remember to take our buckets and spades next time.

Age Group

There is different equipment that is aimed at all ages. There's something for everyone and a good mix for all ages.

Equipment

  • Round Spinning Turntable
  • Huge Wooden Climbing Structure with Obstacle Ropes, Cargo Climbing Net, Huge Metal Slide and Rope Bridge
  • Climbing Wall

  • Small Wooden Bouncing Pirate Ship
  • Wooden Climbing Frame with Sand Chutes
  • Sand Sieves
  • Rubberised floor

Things to Watch Out For

  • There is an area of open water in the sandpit part of the park so keep an eye on little ones
  • The slides are super fast but my two loved them!

Toilets

There are no toilets

Picnic Area

Benches dotted around the park

Parking

As mentioned previously, there is NO parking on the estate at all. It is all double yellow lines. All of the roads on the site are major construction routes so please don't park on the double yellow lines - they are there for a reason.

We recommend that you walk or cycle to the parks.

There are a number of large retailers in the vicinity that offer parking for a couple of hours with shopping.

There is a lot of construction traffic so please keep hold of your children's hand when crossing the roads.
