Welcome to Dick Whittington Park…

Looking for somewhere to take the little ones?

Bring the children to Dick Whittington Park and be sure they will get the chance to run, climb, jump, slide and play to their hearts’ content! From trampolines to drop slides and soft play to rainbow slides, our spacious, airy play barn at Dick Whittington Park is equipped for the little and not-so-little ones to have a great day out, burn off some steam and make some fun memories.

Are they ready to challenge their courage and take on the towering death slide? Will they find a new fairytale world of their own imagination among our wendy houses? What moves will they master on the trampolines?

And in the meantime, grown-ups, why not grab a cuppa from the café and enjoy a moment of peace!?

We believe in fun, adventure and exploration and our result is always lots of happy faces!

Rain or Shine

Dick Whittington Park offers free parking, baby changing facilities, an affordable café, outside space with picnic tables and friendly staff.

The Dick Whittington Park is set in Longhope in the Forest of Dean, in the beautiful quiet location of Hidden Valley which runs off May Hill. Our premises include a lake used for wild swimming and land which is leased out, often providing a sanctuary for animals such as donkeys, horses and goats. You might even spot our resident peacock! 


Come and visit us for a cuppa or a light bite in the Cat’s Whiskers cafe and restaurant. We have a family-friendly range of affordable, easy-pleasing snacks, drinks and meals.


The more the merrier! Become a member of our Dick Whittington club and you can bring up to five people for unlimited visits.
