The Adventure Playground, Sandpits and Maze are now open. The Barefoot Walk is still currently closed.

Adventure Playground

Can you conquer the adventure playground? Children can swing into action at the adventure playground, where there’s activities for tots to teens, all made from naturalistic materials. Tackle the Altitude Tower in the adventure playground? Conquer the climbing wall and enjoy an exhilarating slide back down to earth. Have fun on the newly extended agility course, fly high on the swings or have a go at tightrope walking. For older children there are the challenges of the Viking Rope Swing, whirling roundabout aptly called ‘The Whirlwind’ and the bobbing ‘Queen of Swings’ which can be quite boisterous!

Why not race down our new longer twin zip lines moved to beside the Barefoot Walk.

Enjoy a Day at the Beach

The toddler zone is a natural and nautical themed adventure area with willow dens and tunnels to explore and arrange of equipment to develop motor skills and confidence whilst having lots of fun. At its heart is a large sand play area with diggers and activity tower, as well as a nest swing, toddlers’ and traditional seesaws, a mini slide plus baby cradle swings and extra seating. The toddler zone includes three activity boats, one of which is wheelchair accessible, on a “sea of sand”. Test your driving skills at the Young Drivers Zone (vehicles are suitable for children aged 5 and under)

Barefoot Walk - CLOSED

Barefoot Walk at Trentham Gardens

We dare you to brave the Barefoot Walk! Get naked from the knees down and enjoy a walk through the Capability Brown landscape. Tantalise your toes with an array of testing textures including mud, bark, babbling streams, grass and pebbles. Not only is the Barefoot Walk fun, but it’s therapeutic too - as you walk you will be improving your health and vitality, using the historic principles of Sebastian Kneipp. Shoe lockers and foot showers are available.

Hide and Speak Maze 

Within the Hide and Speak Maze, you’ll discover special talking pipes. Shout through them to help you to find your way. Discover a range of flowering meadows with bug hotels attracting lots of interesting seasonally active insects including hoverflies, bees, butterflies, moths, damselflies and beetles as you explore. The final destination is the ‘Treasure Chest’ meadow mound buzzing with pollinators on a sunny day, with a spiral path leading you to the top of the maze. From this high position, you can shout your instructions to others, still lost in the maze! This is a Hornbeam hedge maze, designed by our very own Paul Legeckis, to be child friendly and unintimidating.
