If you have a fearless explorer aged 2 to 4 you’re going to want to pay the Fort Douglas Mini Maze a visit this summer. The perfectly designed toddler playground – located within Fort Douglas – is the ideal stomping ground to set your wee one free and let them get used to their adventure legs.

High Flyers

For the adrenaline seekers it’s got to be the ziplines. These are a firm favourite amongst our Fort Douglas visitors. They will be zipping up and down all day long! With three zips side by side, why not challenge your fellow high flyers to a race?

Perhaps you are super heroes in training, or wilderness explorers flying over a ravine – anything’s possible when you just imagine.

Giant Leaps

A brand new addition to Fort Douglas in 2021 was the giant jumping pillow. Laura, from Edinburgh With Kids tells us:

“It’s hard to get my youngest off the jumping pillows – who would happily stay in this area of Fort Douglas all day – and I’m always happy to buy a coffee from the kiosk that overlooks it! A new addition in 2021 they’ve proved to be a superb extra element to the park and are a great way to burn off any excess energy!”

Cheeky Grins

We think it’s very important to make sure our Fort Douglas explorers are properly fuelled during their visit. After all, there’s nothing that drains imagination more than a hungry little one!

Enter the Fort Douglas Cabin. Stocked with cold drinks (and hot too!), tasty treats and snacks, it’s the perfect stop off point mid play to ensure the cheeky grins stay all day.

Double slides in Fort Douglas

Swift Exits

Have we saved the best till last? We’ll let you decide! The Fort Douglas treetop slides are a legendary feature of the adventure playground. Attached to Sky Maze – made up of treetop bridges, tunnels, slides and turreted adventure-fest – the double slides are the perfect way to make a swift exist from the adventure playground with happy faces all round.

Did you know parents are encouraged to get involved in the Sky Maze fun too? We say, challenge mum and dad to a double slide race! Anything’s possible when you…Just Imagine.
