Magical Winter Party Venue

When the first frost falls on our secluded play area, the scene is set for a twinkly, sparkly Winter Wonderland party!

Our outside play garden is open all year round so if the sun its shining or even if it isn't, you can always enjoy a run around outside.

From the clocks changing in October until March, the park closes before The Bridge, so your host will meet you at the end of your party to escort your guests on a very special lamp-light walk to the Chevening Road gate.  The paths are well lit, but we also have lanterns on sticks for children to walk with, making this an extra special feature of your Winter party.

A rare sight!

Catering, Bouncy Castles & Entertainers

You are welcome to bring your own food or we recommend, Lizzie from our neighbour, Pistachios Cafe, also in East Greenwich Pleasaunce.

For Bouncy Castle hire, we recommend Avabounce who have all our insurance and conditions of hire details.

You are welcome to use Entertainers and decorate the venue but we do ask that you do not use anything that would affect other users or our wildlife, such as water balloons and orbeeze.

What to expect on the day

At the start of your hire, your host will be ready to meet you and take you around the premises, showing you where the tables and chairs are and the toys you can use. They will set up the soft play and giant games for you if booked.  It is not possible to drive into the park, so as we know there can be a lot to bring along for a party your host can meet you at the gate with a large trolley/cart which can be pulled by hand.

There is an exception for bouncy castle hire. The suppliers are allowed to deliver the bouncy castle and come back at the end to collect it.

Your host will return at the end of your party to clean up. Please make sure you are cleared away, all rubbish is bagged up and you are ready to leave by 1.30pm / 5.30pm.  Please take helium canisters home with you as we are unable to dispose of them.
