Ages: all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Tucked away by an Essex riverfront there is an ancient pirate’s bounty waiting to be unearthed by your family at Grays Beach Riverside Park.

Beached in the park’s centre sits Thurrock’s famous pirate ship: a beautifully crafted galleon with plenty of slots, stairs and slides for your little adventurer to discover. Beside the ship, you’ll find an incredible water play area, an AdiZone multi-purpose ball court, and a high-flying aerial zip wire. After sailing the seven seas you’ll be happy to discover that there is also plenty of prime picnic space.

The park is open all year round, and during the summer months there are plenty of activities, competitions and special events organised to keep kids entertained all summer long. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the beach, but at a safe distance from England’s windy coast.
