Noahs Ark Family Centre is a great place for parents to let kids go wild while they watch, but also if the adults want to join in!. There are indoor and outdoor play structures that allow families to engage in active and exploratory play, and there is also a Family Activity Area, which offers construction play, role play, messy play, and a reading corner on a daily basis!

Smaller kids will love ‘Water Babies', a play area designed for children aged up to 3 years old, which is decorated with sea creatures and filled with loads of toys. A safe place for the little ones to develop their senses, explore, and have lots of fun! Kids of all ages will love the 3 level adventure play structure, which is designed to amuse kids up to the age of 12, although parents and carers can join in the fun too! Jump on the trampoline, cross the wobbly bridge, swoosh down the spiral slide, dive in the ball pool, and more in this brightly coloured “Ark”. As with most soft play centres, socks must be worn at all times by children and adults when playing in the Water Babies area and 3 level play structure.

The centre also has a large garden space, which provides extra play space with even more to amuse the kids (and adults!). Features include a zip wire, a sturdy climbing frame, large circular swing, plus a Hide Away to rest in if they want a break from all the fun! There are also toys for toddlers. They do birthday parties too!
