Christchurch Meadows in Caversham is a large open green space that hosts many events and is home to a playground and a paddling pool which my kids love.
The play park at Christchurch Meadows had several spices out area but they re all within a fenced areas with multiple gates to protect you and your little ones from both the rivers and the cycle paths.
The largest area is the sandy park area with the new wooden pirate ship area which is a popular feature in many parks locally, there is also a zip wire and another climbing frame with two other slides in the same area.
Another playground goes from the ground up a ramp for easy access up to a platform with another climbing route up too. Several swings are around the playgrounds including a full seat swing and basket swing. Near to the paddling pool area is a long rope swing.
The final area is aimed at toddler I would say, with a slide, steps and climbing routes as well as a musical game.
All of this with a great view of the bridges and Thames river where there are always plenty of ducks, swans and geese wanting to be fed. Also some lovely places to walk to including cafes and shops in Caversham or a walk to the weir perhaps.
Car parking is just the other side of Reading bridge in hills meadow. Prices start from £3.10 for couple of hours (July 2021).
The amazing Coffee Cube of Caversham will be set up next the pool most days (staff allowing) and be able to met all your refreshment needs with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cans, fruit juiced and much more.
Christchurch Meadow Paddling Pool
The main attraction at Christchurch playground for my kids is the paddling pool which requires no booking to allow all the littles one a chance to cool down and enjoy the water.
Lots here for everyone’s taste and hopefully everyone enjoys their visit, remember to keep it tidy and leave only footprints.
