Soft play area set to open at Arrowe Park

The soft play area at the brand-new Activity for All, Wirral activity centre is set to open from Sunday 27 December.

The area, named ‘The Fun Forest’ has three tiers of play equipment as well as a dedicated and fully enclosed toddler area. Equipment in the older kids area includes a 4 lane wavy slide, dizzy disc, horizontal & vertical rollers, a ball pit and a walk of fear deck. Toddlers are entertained with creations such as a ball pool, rocking bumble bee and soft bricks for their own constructions.

The Fun Forest soft play area is enclosed from the rest of the centre to keep all children safe and contained. However, the low-level railings that separate it, are designed to fit in with the open plan nature of the entire centre, so despite being its own area, it remains connected to the surroundings. It has its own dedicated seating area where parents can sit back and relax while their children play.

The company is recommending that you book via their website although some walk-in slots may also be available.

The Fun Forest is just one of the facilities which will be available for hire for birthday parties. Recognising the time & effort that can go into planning a child’s party, the company have put together three levels of party package, designed to take the stress and hassle out of the planning for parents. Each package includes: a two hour party window; party food; invitations; goody bags; and a party host. The company can also arrange for characters and mascots to make a special appearance at the party.

This is the second phase of opening, with the three 4G football pitches having launched on 2 December. Since opening, a weekend tots training and football skills academy for children aged 18 months – 11 years has begun, which is proving to be very popular. Sessions last for 45 minutes and are split into four categories:

  • Diddies (18 months – 2½ years) 9:00-9:45am
  • Minis (2½ – 3½ years) 9:45-10:30am
  • Stars (3½ – 5 years) 10:30-11:15am
  • Superstars (5-11 years) 11:15-12:00pm

The Climbing Walls and High Ropes Course – which will be welcome additions to the area as there is nothing of the like nearby – are also nearing completion and are expected to be launched in early January.

The centre will also have a dedicated Health & Wellbeing Room which will host classes such as yoga and will be available for hire to private class leaders for their own sessions.

After school clubs will also feature once the centre is fully open next month and will run daily during term time, entertaining kids with a variety of different sporting activities.

This week also sees the first holiday camp, running from Monday 21 – Wednesday 23 December where 5-11 year-olds will be entertained and kept active with a mixture of sports including football, dodgeball, cricket, rounders, and volleyball. With the option of wrap-around care available, it’s ideal for those parents who still need to work after schools have broken up. These holiday camps will take place regularly throughout the year.
