Lumpy Hill Adventure Playground is a warm, welcoming space where children can run free, have water fights, help out in the vegetable garden and join in the kick about. The space is created just for children and it is children who decide what happens each day from using hammers and nails to building new structures to cooking homemade pizza in the outdoor clay oven. We have a lovely campfire area where we enjoy each other’s company and tell stories of adventure and sing songs.
Lumpy Hill Adventure Playground was first opened in 1970 across the road from its current site. It was originally called North Road Adventure Playground and was an open space with no building. The management committee at the time, which included children from the playground, would hold their meetings at The Lamb Public House. The playground then moved in 1975 to its current site which included a log hut. The playground is built on the former site of Market Road cattle market (the gates to the playground are the original gates). Even though the playground had an official name it was known by local children as “The Hut” and was famous for its Community Days and Friday night discos. The Adventure Playground has since welcomed generations of Islington’s children to play.
