Activities for Children

Fun in the Park is a free day of activities on 2nd June. Then, parents can buy wristbands for themselves and their children for that evening.

Craft activities and displays for children are offered all through the year at Abingdon County Hall Museum. Subjects in the coming months include using clay to copy skills used in ancient times, robot making, getting kids inspired by mosaics and also Roman shields. There is a special section of the website for the Museum and crafts even for adults. Look out for Museums at Night 18th May, paper crafts 31st May, puppets and models 31st July.

Have you been to Abbey Meadows recently? The play area has a lot of new things to see and do this season. The outdoor pool, always popular, is having a facelift and is due to re-open with better changing facilities and an improved swimming pool late May 2018. In the meantime, as well as the leisure centre Abingdon School has some open sessions and there are buses every ten minutes to the open air pool near Abingdon Road in Oxford. Passenger boats to Wallingford stop right by the open air pool so if you get the boat down river take your swimming kit.

White Horse Leisure and Tennis Centre, Tilsley Park and a lot of town societies have team sports and water sports. All year round on the Thames, rowing and canoeing is available for all but the very young and the sailing club has open days and regattas.

For young children there is a soft play centre Snakes and Ladders on Audlett Drive,. Culham Adventure Park a mile to the East of town offers high ropes experience and adventure days.

Call at the Information Centre for ideas for any time of year. A thirty mile radius of the town is covered.
