Country Kids: Fun at the Plymouth Hoe park

I know that my last country kids post was about our visit to Plymouth hoe but we seem to be there every weekend at the moment. Instead of our usual run around Smeatons tower and the Barbican, this week we decided to visit the west side of the hoe which has an amazing children's park. 

Unfortunately the main park was closed and the rides were locked away but normally they have a train, bouncy castle, tea cups, and the extreme trampolines where the kids wear a harness. These are great little rides especially as they only cost 50p a ride (except for the trampolines which cost £2). Next door however is a great little place called Treasure Island pictured below. Here the coin operated rides are a little more pricey at £1 a coin but the boys love them. 

Due to the high price for the coins I only allowed the boys three rides each. Tom spent his on the electric powered motorbikes which is always a favourite of his. 

Alfie had a go at the water cannons but most of the water ended up on us instead of the targets which was not comfortable when the weather was so cold that day. 

I decided to treat the boys in the end to one last coin so that they could have a bounce on the trampolines. They are getting so good at these and I would love to have this particular one in our back garden, although I don't think it would fit. 

Eventually, we could no longer stand the cold so ended the day pretty early. Treasure Island was great fun although in my opinion, it is more enjoyable in the summer. There is also mini golf, gold digging, bumper boats, and diggers so great for a family day out.

  1. Looks like lots of fun, but don't think we would have stayed long in this weather either.

  2. Looks like they had fun, but it's definitely a bit brisk to stay out for long.

  3. It's good to get out, even if it's just for a little bit. Love the photos on the trampolines, looks like they're having a great time! #CountryKids

  4. Brrrr. Looks like you guys had fun. It's too cold to stay out all day. #countrykids

  5. I didn't know there was all this at Plymouth Hoe too, if mine were a little younger they would have loved it all, it does look quite deserted when you were there but I imagine it comes to life in summer. Well done for getting out there and enjoying the winter air for a bit and at least there were no queues for anything!

  6. Awww I have a school mum friend who is from there and she said its a really pretty place and from your photos, it is! =) #countrykids

    this looks like such a lovely place to go for a day out!
    Thanks for linking up with the #WeekendBlogHop!

  8. Looks like a lovely place - shame it wasn't all open. I think if they charged less for things they'd probably make more money.

  9. Ooh I see one of my friends goes here a lot, it looks here like it could be so much fun when it is all open #countrykids
