COVID UPDATE

Sky Ropes is currently closed.

Some part of the play trail are undergoing maintance.

Limited facilities are open on site including 'walk in to take away' cafe.

The Country Park covers some 100 acres of open space. The site is home to Sky Ropes and Essex's longest play trail - 1.2km - including a giant see-saw, climbing forest, tyre swings, sand pits, rope climbers, slides, forts and a water play area, making it a great place for all ages to explore.

It's a particularly brilliant place to visit since its Sky Ropes experience features a 'Junior' version suitable for over-twos. Additionally, the cycling route is flat and hard-surfaced, so it is perfect for getting the hang of riding a bike for the first time. But don't think this is a destination only for littlies - all ages will be entertained, even teenagers, who will love the thrill of the Sky Ropes course.
