• The Community Centre Playpark in Stromness, Orkney


Orkney has plenty of natural attractions, including some beautiful beaches, to keep young people entertained during their time in the islands. Sometimes though, nothing but a playpark will do.

Here in Orkney, there are plenty to choose from so you’ll never have to travel far to find a chute, swings or a climbing frame. There are facilities in almost every town, village and island, ranging from small-scale play areas at local schools, to newly-built, community-funded parks.

On top of that, there are also two excellent soft-play areas – at the Pickaquoy Centre and at the Wellpark Garden Centre in Kirkwall. They’re perfect options when the Orcadian weather isn’t at its best and indoor activities are in demand.
