London's oldest adventure playground under threat
My name is Gabriel and I am a play worker at the Triangle Adventure Playground.
We are London's oldest adventure playground, founded in 1957 and situated in Oval South London. We are open 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year and have more than 1,000 active registered young people of which on average 54 young people attend Triangle each day.
Our core ethos is free adventure play for ages 6 - 18 years old. Free play, swings and structures, building, arts and crafts, cooking, gardening, sports and trips are just some of the many activities we offer. Lambeth is one of the lowest ranked boroughs in London regarding child poverty, obesity and deprivation and the vital role we play within our local community both for young people and their parents alike cannot be underestimated.
Do check out website to discover much more information about Triangle and the importance of adventure play. Here is funders page which includes extracts from an independent report which evaluates our services and contribution to the area as well as an infographic about Triangle. You can see a prior video made by the young people **MAIL**
