We’ve created inspirational spaces for kids here at Eden because we know that outdoor play can improve health, imagination, cognitive skills and self-esteem – all essential ingredients for a happy and successful young person.
Kids get the chance to crawl into their own giant ‘bug hotel’ in our Minibeast Mansion play tower. Under-10s can clamber, creep, and slide through the hexagonal wooden structure and explore its intricate compartments. It’s designed to help children enjoy ‘wild play’, as well as introduce little ones to the subject of pollination.
This wooden structure outside the entrance to the Core building is a favourite with tinies and parents. It appeals to younger kids, who love clambering and climbing all over it, while parents enjoy a rest on the grass.
This sensory garden behind our Core building is perfect for exploring with children. It has all kinds of inspirational ideas for making a low-cost school or community garden in a small space on the north side of a building: willow spirals, rainbows of flowers, soft paths, and plants that are textured, spooky or scented.
These tunnels created out of bent willow shoots, which interweave like snakes, are a favourite with people of all ages. They’re a great way to get a different perspective of Eden.
