Rain or Shine, there will always be somewhere to meet up and play in The Ridings. 

31st March 2023

Mr Zahid Iqbal, the new owner of The Ridings Centre has confirmed that a new FREE indoor adventure play zone is coming to the centre this year.

Covering over 1,200 square meters in what is currently The Zone and a retail unit, on the lower mall near Morrisons, ‘The Park’ a FREE adventure play zone will be a place where families and friends can meet up, all year round, whatever the weather.

The adventure play zone is brought to the centre by award-winning, Playday Limited the creative genius behind the play area at the York Designer outlet and the new play area at Cannon Hall Farm, to name just a few.

Mr Iqbal commented: “…my grandchildren love the play areas when we go visiting and I wanted to give something spectacular to the families of Wakefield, for free, undercover and safe for them to meet up and for their children to play together”.

The area will allow children of all ages to play, let off steam, and interact with each other on safe, professionally designed, and installed equipment, whilst parents, grandparents and careers play can play with them or catch up in the new comfortable seated area included in the zone.

The adventure play zone will be open daily, every day that the centre is and suitable for those up to 12 years of age, with zoned areas for different age groups.
