Great for children and well laid out so parents can keep an eye on them

It is in a lovely location,on the green in Paignton in front of the beach, It will cost the families nothing if they take a picnic and the children can play all day.

Loved this one! The setting is beautiful, right opposite the pier and shoreline. The park is pretty and well looked after with a great mix of activities, my three year old would have stayed for hours if we'd let him! Really well done and totally worth a visit.

Great for all ages - bit busy in summer but lots of fun. The middle of pubs/restaurants and the beach and donkeys. Perfect place to run off steam.

We come here often with our grand daughter and. Family and friends when they visit. It's a lovely play area, I adore watching the children playing on the mechanical sand diggers. Something here for all children from the youngest to early teens ( zip wire! ) and it's all free! Wonderful adventure area, a few steps from Paignton beach, lots... More

The kids will love it - so much to play on. Tempting for adults as well ! Lots of different climbing, swinging & spinning things to go on and so many things don't think I noticed anyone waiting around.

It's free, it's clean and will keep the kids occupied for 20 minutes or so until they remember there is money to waste elsewhere......don't expect to walk amongst the Penguins or watch seals swim underwater from this location as a previous confused reviewer has said, it is just a kids play area, however being close to the beach you may...

Really great place to visit as you can walk amongst the penguins. Also you can sea seals both from the surface and below which gives you a good insight. There were great aquariums and exhibits which kept the interest up.

Nice area but could be cleaner due to a lack of waste bins. Swings were missing although on this occasion the water feature was working a great draw for children.

We live in Torbay,and had never looked at the park but out for a walk on Paignton sea front noticed all the activity and stopped to see what it entailed Children of all ages really enjoying themselves, it was a joy to see them putting themselves over and through the equipment, and not a mobile phone to be seen !!!!
