About the playground

This exciting new development is one of the biggest outdoor play areas in the South West, covering nearly 500m² and featuring a majestic nine-metre-tall Tree of Life tower.

The play area also includes a water course fed by recycled ground water, a china clay pit, slides, ladders, swings, and so much more. 

Young explorers are invited to embark on a thrilling journey like never before, intertwining joy, imagination and exploration within nature to create unforgettable memories.

Practical information

  • Entry to the playground is free, provided you have a valid form of Eden Project admission. This can be a General Admission ticket, Annual or Locals’ Pass or Membership. All* visitors to the Eden Project are encouraged to pre-book a timed entry slot.
  • To enter the playground, children will also need a pre-booked playground entry time slot. Adults do not need to book a playground entry time slot.
  • Arrive within the playground time slot booked, and you can stay as long as you like.
  • When visiting the playground, all children must be accompanied by an adult. There is a maximum of two supervising adults per child and three children per supervising adult.
  • Please be aware that water play is a key sensory element of the playground, so we recommend you come prepared for your child(ren) to get wet.

Relaxed Sessions

If your child would benefit from a playground environment with fewer people and a chance to explore at their own pace, you may wish to try our Relaxed Sessions. These slots are open to all but are designed for those with autism, sensory or communication needs in mind.

We're running Relaxed Sessions for Nature's Playground on Wednesday 12 July (11.30am – 12.30pm) and Thursday 20 July (3.30pm – 4.30pm).

Eden Project Biomes

About the Eden Project

We are an educational charity and tourist attraction based in Cornwall in the UK. Over twenty years ago, we took an exhausted clay pit and gave it life. Our site is now home to the famous Biomes and Gardens, filled with thousands of plants from around the world. 

We welcome around 1m visitors every year, educating people about the importance of plants and nature. Our global mission is to create a movement that builds relationships between people and the natural world.
