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 Geoplay adventure park is designed around the English Riviera’s fascinating geological history.
First, the toddler area represents the Devonian Period when Torbay was south of the equator and under tropical coral seas. Little ones will love riding on the trilobite and swinging over a wet-pour sea. Plus, other features include a seesaw, climbing hut, trampoline and spinner bowls.
Next, the junior area has a giant climbing net symbolising a time during the Carboniferous Period. Whilst sand and water play areas represent the Permian Period, when we were just north of the equator. This is when Torbay’s red sandstones and breccia rocks were formed.
Finally, we skip to the Quaternary Period which is a teen play zone and has links with Kents Cavern from a geological perspective. This is 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.
