Fort Apache

Fort Apache is an adventure playground in the heart of Torquay, in the grounds at Torquay Academy

Fort Apache is an open access adventure playground in the heart of Torquay, NOW IN Cricketfield Road, Torquay, TQ2 7NU (a few meters below the main entrance to Torquay Academy)

It gives children and young people the opportunity to explore the wilderness, play games, join in with a group of friends, climb trees, build dens, have exciting imaginative adventure, create secret hiding places, which they have to jump/crawl/roll/squeeze into…


Holidays and half-term times:

Please see our Holiday Programme for sessions.

Fort Apache’s play sessions are free, for all ages and open to anyone who wants to come and play, cook, explore, toast marshmallow and help make Fort Apache the best place to be! (although under 7’s may need to be accompanied by adults for the first few sessions!)

Sessions are with staff who are police checked and use equipment to an accepted safety standard.

Fort Apache is open for everyone to explore the outdoors, try out adventurous, outdoor play, games, cooking, crafts and skills. We believe that ALL children should have the freedom and space to play close to where they live.

Play Torbay are working with the Friends of Fort Apache, Gardens and Greens and local families to provide a place to play freely, making opportunities to build camps and dens, to cook outdoors, to plant and grow things or just have FUN!

Why not check it out? Please come along and introduce yourself to the Senior Playworker. And please ‘Like’ us us on Facebook! For more information, email or call 01803 850157.

All attending young people will need to have a completed registration form which can be downloaded HERE.
