Open Access Play Sessions

This is the best fun ever!  Luke aged 7

Duffryn Community Link as one of the four partners is committed to supporting the Woodland Routes to Wellbeing Project.

As a partner on the Woodland Routes to Wellbeing project, Duffryn Community Link will be providing FREE outdoor play sessions. These will run all year round and aim to encourage local children and families to make more of their environment, be given the opportunity and the freedom to play outdoors and to create some amazing memories at the same time.

The Play Ranger team delivers open access play sessions in the Duffryn area and at Tredegar House Park every week. These are aimed at children aged 4-14.

Timetable of Play Sessions

Open access play provision provides staffed play opportunities for children in the absence of their parents. Children are not restricted in their movements, other than when related to safety matters and are not prevented from coming and going as they wish – we aim to recreate how you might have played as a child – exploring, investigating, leaning and enjoying the outdoor world.
