In pictures: Families on the hunt for adventure head to new outdoor playground
A new outdoor adventure trail has opened up in Kidderminster – just in time for summer.
Habberley Trail has opened on the 42-acre site of an old golf club in Low Habberley, and is run by the family behind The Crockey Trail adventure playground.
The land underwent a £1million renovation to create a new outdoor trail through the countryside including various activities.
The site features a giant seesaw, a ‘barrel roll’, connect four basketball, swings, a skipping machine, a fairy trail, a football challenge, quick shoot basketball, a crocodile maze and more.
Visitors take their time walking along the countryside trail and enjoying the activities as they come across them. There is also a cafe on site.
Director Jack Walley said it was “wonderful to see kids out enjoying nature”.
He said: “We were about to open but then lockdown happened. We’ve got about 30 to 40 attractions on site and it’s been really good so far, people seem to love it.
"Some of them haven’t seen anything like it before. To hear kids playing out on the park is just great.
“We’ve had to close a few things due to Covid – as you can’t wipe them down enough but we’ve done what we can, putting hand sanitisers up and making things safe.
“There’s plenty of space as its outdoors.
“One of the things we’ve enjoyed is that we’re getting kids outdoors experiencing nature, which for lots of kids this isn’t happening as much. So we’re pleased to get them outside in the outdoors and exercising.”
