Overview

Abbotsbury Playground is maintained and insured by volunteers. A group of local people came together to form a group in 2006 working tirelessly hard to turn a field into the beautiful playground it is today. The playground was made possible through the kind donations of the community, Chesil Bank Parish Council, Dorset Community Action (Kris Hallett) Awards for all, Co operative Community Fund, The Big Lottery Community Spaces Grant and the hard work of its committee members who successfully applied for these grants.We have volunteers who cut the grass, empty the bins and ensure the playground is perfect! We have visitors who also visit, play and keep the playground tidy and we would like to thank you all for this! Please feel free to leave us a review, we'd love to hear your thoughts on your trip!

I've visited several times with my two year old; she and I both love it. There is a wide range of equipment - swings, climbing frame, zip wire, tractor, see-saw, roundabout, all wooden and maintained by volunteers. Set in beautiful countryside, it's a quality playground...More

We go here every year we come on holiday down this way. It is a brilliantly thought out play park built from natural resources. IT is set at the bottom of the hill in full view of St Catherine's Chapel. A peaceful and restorative place...More

My grandchildren thought this playground looks very attractive and it is clearly worth a visit. The pieces of equipment were interesting and fitted well with the delightful local environment

A nice spot off the main road through Abbotsbury, but nothing to write home about (only here on TripAdvisor maybe). The playground is basic with no facilities.

My wife and I stumbled across the playground as we walked on the old lanes around Abbotsbury. It has been in existence since 2012 and is on the site of the old Abbotsbury cricket ground at the foot of St Catherine's Chapel hill. An excellent...More
