A place to play
Nuneaton play areas for the kids
Travelling and holidaying with children can be rewarding. Seeing them soak up the new sights and experiences is wonderful. They do this in a way that only a child can. Travelling and exploring is an important part of a child's development. At the same time, it can be challenging to find activities to occupy them.
North Warwickshire is an ideal choice for holidaying with the kids. There are plenty of interesting attractions, museums and other facilities. But sometimes the need is more simple. Running off some energy at a playground is in order. Fortunately, Nuneaton has several within easy reach of Abbey Green View.
Not a playground as such, but it is right on the doorstep - yes, it really is! Straight outside the front door is this open area of well-maintained grass. Although there are no climbing frames or slides, the green is perfect for ball games, tig and the like. Abbey Green is popular with locals.
The Recreation Ground (or Rec) is a short walk from Abbey Green. Here you will find a playground along with a 5-A-Side pitch. This floodlit area has an outdoor gym suitable for adults too.
With plenty of open space, the kids will love it. There is a tarmacked area for ball games when the grass is too wet. Fenced off areas ensure the safety of younger children. The varied facilities will keep the whole family entertained.
There is also parking here. Useful if you are planning a visit on the way to or from a day out.
Set in Nuneaton's Riversley Park, this play area is also a memorial. It takes its name from Louis Carter. Louis, a Royal Fusilier, was only 18 years old when he was killed serving in Afghanistan in 2009. He received a full military funeral and was laid to rest at the nearby Our Lady of the Angels Churchyard.
A state-of-the-art recreation area for youngsters was being planned for Riversley Park. The town council named it after Louis when it opened in 2010.
The play area has lots of facilities from swings to aerial walkways. It is part sand-covered and part grass. There is something here for children of all ages. Plus, the large park it is in has plenty of space for ball games. Also, there are formal gardens, along with the town's museum and art gallery. Inside there is the George Eliot 'writing room'. Designed to help children discover creative writing, it's both fun and educational.
Going further afield there are plenty of other attractions for children. Many of them, fascinating for adults too. Here we looked at three that are easily accessible. They are high quality and perfect for running off that excess energy.
