Little Skippers Explorer Park

Learn Through Play

The team have been busy on site making sure everyone who visits us has a great time on our site.

For our younger visitors we have  added the Little Skippers Explorer Park, a “Learn Through Play” area that explores a range of themes from wildlife found on the canal, how canals are used and have a go activities such as tying boat knots and recognising what we can do to help protect these amazing spaces.

In the centre of this we have our bright and fun-filled play boat, ideal for letting the little ones run off some energy in the fresh air whilst parents can sit back and relax.

Funding for this play area was provided by the recent Culture Recovery Grant managed by the Heritage Fund.  Access to the area is free, along with a visit to the adjacent Biffa Gallery which explores how the canals were developed and used over time.
