Outdoor Adventure Play Park

Children will love the outdoor adventure play park at Ulwell Holiday Park. There is a wide selection of play equipment on offer, with something to suit all members of the family. It’s easy to while away and hour or so here each day of your stay. The play area is a great place for children to burn off some steam and socialise with new found friends.

Children’s play area

We’ve tried to create a play park that entertains children of all ages. Little ones can spend time playing in the fire truck with tunnels and a fireman’s pole, while older children whizz down the zip line and tackle the balance obstacle course and climbing frame.

Recreational field

The outdoor adventure play park is located within our recreational field, close to the touring and camping pitches. This is a popular spot on park and lovely area to spend quality time together making happy memories to cherish for years to come.

The field is a fantastic size with plenty of room for children to run and play to their hearts content. There’s a football goal and lots of space for ball games such as rounders and cricket.

Towards the edge of the field there’s a couple of benches, which are the ideal place to enjoy a well-earned break and snacks. Parents can enjoy a sit down and relax while supervising play!

What our guests say

  • A lovely quiet site

    Andy Blackwell

    A lovely quiet site, nice warm amenities with good sized shower cubicles, shop not open yet as it’s too early but the local pub is ideal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. If you’re reasonably fit you can walk into Swanage but the bus service is great so why would you want to. Overall a very nice break, we will be back.

  • Super swimming pool

  • Easter break


    We have just returned after a brilliant Easter break. Couldn’t fault anything at all and we didn’t want to leave. We didn’t visit the pub but the shop is stocked with local produce and essentials. The facilities are great and the location convenient. Our van was spotless and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back
