Treehouse Towers, Kew’s brand new tree-themed outdoor play area
Did you know?
- Forests cover 30% of the planet, but 7.3 million hectares (0.2%) of forest is lost per year.
- Trees reduce noise pollution by acting as sound barriers.
- Trees take the carbon dioxide we breathe out and convert it to oxygen we breathe in.
Play area highlights
Located outside Climbers and Creepers, Treehouse Towers allows up to 300 kids to climb up ladders, clamber across rope bridges and slide their way down from the three towers. Each tower varies in height, and as children scale between them they’ll find each one more of a challenge.
The area features giant swings, zip wires, scramble nets, slides and a mountaineering ramp for families to enjoy, whilst also offering educational opportunities for children to learn about and appreciate trees.
Supported by Velvet
Treehouse Towers is supported by Velvet toilet tissue who have ensured that all elements of the play area are created from FSC-certified wood. This ties in with their ‘three trees’ initiative, where they ensure that three trees are replanted for every one used.
