Be King or Queen of the Castle at Hylands Park

Chelmsford, Essex

Whether it’s a short stroll or a long walk there are many routes to choose from at 574-acre Hylands Park.

Younger visitors will be delighted with the Adventure Castle Play Area. The main Adventure Castle has two large sections of castle wall, one of which is fully inclusive and suitable for wheelchairs.

There are ladders, scramble nets and boards with lots of opportunity to climb and run and jump, as well as slides at varying heights, sensory equipment, a musical wall and spinning games discs. Go wild on the high energy swings, with an inclusive cradle swing, or have a go on the moving balance beam or spinning disc roundabout. There is seating within the main play area along with a large picnic area, which includes some picnic tables suitable for use with wheelchairs.

‘Repton’s’ Walk is a circular walk of the park lasting approximately one hour fifteen minutes, and the Pleasure Gardens, the One World Garden and the Serpentine Lake all make the perfect backdrop for a picnic.
