Private Hire

Adventure playgrounds are magical places where children can experience a sense of freedom and excitement. We are dedicated to making this playground a place for everyone which is why our open access sessions are always free of charge.


To support our work we hire out the space at other times, prioritising children's use and working with schools and community groups. We offer excellent hire rates including a reduced rate for community use.


Hiring SWAPA for children's parties

Looking for a hassle free, exciting option to celebrate your child's birthday? Our site is perfect for 6-15 year old's birthday parties.

Our large swings and structures, sandpit, skate ramp and more will keep your guests entertained and you can use our fully fitted kitchen to rustle up snacks. Hot day? Have a water fight! Cold day? Have a campfire! There are so many possibilities here and there'll be a member of staff on site to help you find what you need.

Community hire

Are you a school, uniformed youth group, forest school, or other organisation working with 6-15 year olds? Are you looking for somewhere the children can blow off some steam, have an end of year treat, have a practical experience of making a campfire, learn about reused or recycled materials, learn how to skateboard, build their confidence? You've come to the right place! And if your service is free/low cost to families then your organisation might be eligible for our reduced community hire rate. We are open to discuss use by people of other ages.

Hire for other uses

We are also open to enquiries to use SWAPA as a film location etc.

Birthday Parties

Kids love SWAPA parties. The hours fly by with kids exploring and discovering new bits of the playground that they have all to themselves.

You can use  the kitchen to prepare lunch, or cook it over the fire if you'd rather...

"I didn't even know about this place until I came here for my friends party! It's amazing!" - Child, 8 years old

"We loved having a party at Swapa. There is just so much room for the children to let off steam and it felt like something a bit different from the usual children’s parties. It’s such a magical space. My daughter still talks about that as her favourite birthday party ever." - Parent

Nursery and School Visits

SWAPA regularly hosts nurseries and schools to use the space during the daytime. We have a large sand pit, garden and climbing structures that the children love using, and indoor/outdoor facilities to meet their needs.

"It’s a really helpful, fun and necessary place for our students to be able to develop all of their social and motor skills."

- Luis Lopez, Exercise Tutor, The Garden School

Corporate volunteer days

We offer a variety of opportunities for organisations to meet their CSR agenda.

A truly unique and valuable experience, SWAPA regularly host corporate volunteer days which include hands-on training, and working with power tools to complete a project for example,

re-building a walkway for one of our climbing structures.

Not only will people experience the satisfaction of completing a project in one day, they'll be helping to make the site safe for children and ensure its longevity.
