Five Roman themed play parks have been built as part of the Rediscovering the Antonine Wall project. The aim for the play parks is to provide links with local Roman heritage as well as educational and learning opportunities for visitors. The play parks were designed after consultation with local children and replicate a Roman fort with it’s defensive features. Information boards give an insight about life along the Antonine Wall. All play parks include wheelchair accessible equipment.
Callendar Park, Falkirk FK1 1YR
Our first play park project was the refurbishment of the Callendar Park play area. At the entrance you will be greeted by an Iron Age Chief and a Roman Legionnaire. Designed with the local primary school, the trampolines mimic the defensive Lilia pits at Rough Castle. Why not visit the Roman exhibition at Callendar House next door?
Auchintsarry Roman Play Park, Kilsyth, G65 0TD
This brand new play park overlooks Auchinstarry Marina. Croy Hill and Bar Hill are visible in the distance and are only a short walk away. Those are worth a visit to see the forts and Silvanus.
