Take a fun tour through the English Riviera’s geological history
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. The toddler area represents the Devonian Period when the area was south of the equator and under tropical coral seas.
Fun for all ages
Toddlers will be able to ride on a trilobite and swing over a wetpour sea. This area also has a seesaw, climbing hut, trampoline and spinner bowls.
The junior area has a giant climbing net symbolising a time during the Carboniferous Period
The sand and water play area represents the Permian Period when we were just north of the equator and all of our red sandstones and breccia rocks were formed. This area has a purpose built water channel for children to pump and dam water and digging equipment and tables for sand play.
Then we skip to the Quaternary period which is the teen play zone and links with Kents Cavern from a geological perspective. This is the largest area of the park and has the zip wire, towers, play huts, a six way swing, climbing logs and stilts and climbing trees.
