Welcome

With immediate effect, the Playground will be using MyDonate for their online donations and for people to set up fundraising pages.  This will enable more of your lovely pounds sterling to be received by the Playground as MyDonate do not charge any fees for providing the service.

As children, most of us would take for granted the chance to get out and about, exploring, climbing trees, visiting the park and hanging out with friends, but for many children and adults with a special need, it just isn't possible.  If you have a physical disability, the difficulties are more obvious, but, if you have a learning disability or sensory problems, you may find it hard to relate to other people and to join in their games. Since 1982 the Thames Valley Adventure Playground  has provided a chance for children & adults with all types of special need to enjoy the fun, freedom and friendship afforded by the opportunity to play and share experiences in a safe and stimulating environment, with users travelling from Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, London and beyond. Wheelchair-accessible roundabouts and swings, elevated walkways allowing someone with profound and multiple problems to enjoy the excitement of 'climbing' trees, multi-sensory rooms to stimulate and relax, with specially-trained staff to provide help and support - these are just a few of the things on offer.

Last year over
4,000 visitors made nearly 13,500 visits to The Playground, with users travelling from all over the Thames Valley and beyond as there is nowhere quite like The Playground closer to home. 
As a registered charity, it costs in excess of £350,000 a year to keep the Playground going.  With as little as 5% of the money we will need this year coming from
local authority funding, the support of the local community is absolutely crucial in helping to maintain a service which is of huge benefit to so many children and adults who have a special need.
