Fort Apache Adventure Playground

Fort Apache Adventure Playground

Fort Apache is an open access adventure playground in the heart of Torquay, off Pendennis Road in Hele, opposite the Windmill Centre. It gives children and young people the opportunity to explore the wilderness, play games, join in with a group of friends, climb trees, build dens, have exciting imaginative adventure, create secret hiding places, which they have to jump/crawl/roll/squeeze into…
Open access play sessions with qualified staff on:


Saturdays 9.30am – 1.00pm

Wednesdays 4pm – 6pm

Thursdays 4pm – 6pm


Saturdays 9.30am – 1.00pm

Tuesdays 10am – 3pm

Wednesdays 10am – 3pm

Thursdays 10am – 3pm

Fort Apache’s play sessions are free, for all ages and open to anyone who wants to come and play, cook, explore, toast marshmallow and help make Fort Apache the best place to be! (although under 8’s may need to be accompanied by adults for the first few sessions!)

Sessions are with staff who are police checked and use equipment to an accepted safety standard.

Fort Apache is open for everyone to explore the woods, try out adventurous, outdoor play, games, cooking, crafts and skills. We believe that ALL children should have the freedom and space to play close to where they live.

Play England and Play Torbay are working with the Friends of Fort Apache and local families to provide a place to play freely, making opportunities to build camps and dens, to cook outdoors, to plant and grow things or just have FUN!

Why not check it out? Please come along and introduce yourself to Theo, Jane or Felicia. And please befriend us on Facebook!
