Treehouse Family Play – Bournemouth – Soft Play, But Not As You Know It

Suitable for  0 – 12

tree house soft play 2If you’re in Bournemouth town centre, the Treehouse represents a welcome departure from the usual indoor play centres.

When my daughter was in Bournemouth recently she took her 2 year old to the Treehouse.

Now my daughter has a love/hate relationship with soft play centres. and thinks they are great for letting the children run around but she finds they are often dirty, with headache inducing noise levels and with lurid play equipment.

The Treehouse is different and is a family play centre designed with grown ups in mind as well as children!

Check out the coffee and the locally sourced food.

The play/climbing area is built with natural materials and in natural colours.  It has a network of ropes and ladders. There is also a dressing up area and a downstairs area with a painting wall and remote control cars (although this is sometimes closed off for private group sessions).

Our 2 year old granddaughter enjoyed the dressing up and running around the treehouse area, but she was a bit small to climb up on the frame, but I am sure she will be climbing all over it the next time.

It’s not a huge place (space is limited due to its town centre location) but it’s a nice place to spend some time, particularly if the weather has put paid to any outdoor activities
