You may have seen my recent post about the Easter Egg Hunt we did with the girls at Willows Activity Farm in St Albans. As part of our visit we had a little sneak preview of the brand new Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground that is now open to the public.
With an investment of over £1 million, the Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground has been under construction since last year. The playground is centred on the much-loved stars of the animated CBeebies series ‘Peter Rabbit’. It is the first Peter Rabbit themed adventure play area of its kind.
Mrs Tiggy-Winkle Kitchen
Mr McGregor’s Garden
When we visited, the playground was not quite ready for children to play but we were given a fully guided tour and preview of the attraction. The new area will include ten attractions such as Lily Bobtail Nature Discovery, Mrs Tiggy-winkle Kitchen and Mr. Bouncer Great Invention which includes state-of-the-art sensory gaming play, musical instruments in Jeremy Fisher Musical Pond, as well as traditional climbing frame adventure play equipment. Visitors can spend time finding their way through the Garden Maze and exploring the Mr. McGregor Shed.
Peter Rabbit Secret Treehouse
They have incorporated a 100 year old ash tree into the playground as the Peter Rabbit Secret Treehouse, where children can climb and play! How cool is that? This is a a true tribute to the values of Beatrix Potter who was passionate about the natural world.
What do you think? Do you like the idea of a playground like this? Will you go and visit too? Are your kids fans of the Peter Rabbit books or the CBeebies TV show? Leave me a comment as I would love to know what your thoughts.
*Disclaimer: we were invited to Willows Activity Farm for a special sneak preview of The Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground and to also enjoy what the rest of the farm has to offer for the whole family, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Thanks for stopping by,
Love you all ❤️

Oh wow…my toddler would LOVE it there. One to add to the list. Great pics too! #KCACOLS
It looks so cute! My little one is a bit young for it but she’s getting into Peter Rabbit more and more so would be lovely to visit with her in the future. Thanks for hosting #KCACOLS xx

I don’t know about the kids, but I would love the adventure playground! I used to love Beatrix Potter when I was younger! I bet Dot would love this when she’s older 🙂
What great photos!

This looks like a great playground. It’s a bit far from us but the attention to detail and different areas look like they make a really magical experience. Will bear it in mind if we’re ever round that way! #KCACOLS

I loved Peter Rabbit as a child, so much! It is one of my favorites to read to our daughter now. This looks amazing, I would love to have something like this near me. #KCACOLS

Oh wow!!! The Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground looks amazing Franca! What a magical place. I love all of the activities & the way the signs are done. Getting to meet Peter Rabbit would be so exciting! It sounds like the perfect family day out. #KCACOLS

What a great idea for a childrens attraction/play area. It really is quite unique, and I like the concept. I almost wish our little one was more into Peter Rabbit so that we could take her. But I think we would probably be more interested that she would! It looks lovely though and I bet it makes a great day out for families 🙂 Love discovering new places like this through blogging, so thanks for sharing it! Emily #KCACOLS

Harry loves Peter Rabbit at the moment. On a normal day my name is Benjamin and when I do something naughty I am Mr McGregor! So I read through this hoping it would be nearer to me – Up North! Gutted when I read it wasn’t. Oh well, might do it as a stop over instead as it sounds a great day out. #KCACOLS

We spent many happy days at Willows Farm as it is fairly close to us. Lily and her friends and cousins have had the most fabulous times there. Peter Rabbit looks amazing and there have certainly been many changes since we were last there. They have a fabulous Halloween theme there during the October half-term and their Christmas Grotto was always one of our favourites. I would put it on the ‘must visit’ at Christmas list. They do it beautifully. Ours are all getting a bit too big now #kcacols
This looks amazing Franca – I bet it will be very popular when the playground opens! x
