Play areas

Please note: Some areas, including some play equipment and some indoor areas remain closed. These closures are in place because social distancing is not currently possible or because they include, by their nature, multiple high-frequency touch points. Please check our updates page ahead of your visit.

Climb up the scramble net, run across the scatter bridge, slide down the fireman’s pole and take on the climbing wall at the Fun Fort! Our undercover kids' adventure park is the perfect place for little ones to burn off some energy come rain or shine, and there's lots of seating for grown ups.

Across Wild Place Project you'll also discover lots of outdoor Play Wild areas including Congo Bongo, a giant bird's nest and woodland play area in Bear Wood, and the Barefoot Trail - throw off your shoes and feel pebbles, bark, mud and more beneath your feet!

Near the Sanctuary Garden kids can go back in time with our life-sized wooden aeroplane model. The plane is based on the Royal Air Force's Bristol Bulldog model, which was first produced by the Bristol Aeroplane Company in 1927. The White family, who owned the aerospace manufacturer, also owned the Wild Place Project estate before they gifted it to Bristol Zoological Society. This model aeroplane was built to commemorate our history as well as offering a fun place to play.
