Baltic Street Adventure Playground - Inspiring Scotland

Thrive Outdoors

Baltic Street Adventure Playground

Part of the Outdoor Nursery Social Enterprise (ONSE) fund.

Baltic Street Adventure Playground is supervised adventure playground for children from 6 to 12 years which is child-led. Younger children are welcome with a carer or guardian. It is free to enter, children are free to come and go, and free to play as they choose.

The children choose what to do and can get involved in everything from the day-to-day management to the development of the site.

Specially trained play workers keep children safe, cook food on the campfire and support them to pursue their own play, from make-believe to construction projects.

Through the ONSE fund they are setting up Baltic Street Adventure Nursery.
