SNUG is soft play with a difference – instead of fixed play equipment, the kit consists of soft and tactile shapes that children can join together to create their own exciting play landscapes. Kids can create dens, tunnels, obstacle courses, trampolines, rockets, houses – the possibilities are endless, and the hands-on nature encourages kids to work together to build something fun.
Follow signs for Lewis Cubitt Park (off Handyside Street) where you’ll find the SNUG. The park is also great for older kids who prefer to kick a ball around on the lawn.
The play equipment will be at the park daily between 10am and 4pm throughout the summer (provided it is not too wet on the grass).
Also don’t miss the KX Play Hub run by experienced play workers and always free of charge. Just bring your imagination! Come rain or shine, this is open to children of all ages.
The usual meeting spot is Lewis Cubitt Park, moving to West Handyside Canopy if the weather isn’t being nice. But follow @playkx on Instagram for daily updates on what, where and when.
Friday to Sunday 11am – 17:00 ish. Children must be accompanied by a grown-up.
If some refuelling is in order, then weekday lunchtimes you’ll find street food market KERB at King’s Boulevard. Or just off the top of the park is the Global Generation Skip Garden. The Skip Garden Kitchen serves up delicious lunches and treats, and there’s plenty for kids to see and do in the garden all year round. And for an afternoon treat, ice cream shop Ruby Violet has opened just in time for summer.
