Take a fun tour through the English Riviera’s geological history with this brilliant play park on Paignton Seafront.
There’s lots to do for all ages at this great free attraction on Paignton Seafront including sand and water play, a zip wire and giant climbing net.
The adventure park is designed around the English Riviera’s geological history, with the toddler area representing the Devonian Period when the area was south of the equator and under tropical coral seas.
Little ones will love riding on the trilobite and swinging over a wetpour sea, plus other features include a seesaw, climbing hut, trampoline and spinner bowls.
The junior area has a giant climbing net symbolising a time during the Carboniferous Period, while sand and water play area representing the Permian Period when we were just north of the equator and all of the area’s red sandstones and breccia rocks were formed.
Then we skip to the Quaternary Period which is a teen play zone and has links with Kents Cavern from a geological perspective – the largest area of the park and equipped with a zip wire, towers, play huts, a six-way swing, climbing logs and stilts and climbing trees.
