You can find out how we are currently operating our centres to keep you safe.
Our multi-level main frame has obstacles, netting to climb and a soft play area where kids can burn off steam.
There are two sections to the soft play frame, one for children under 3 years and one for children from 3 to 7 years.
There are also tables and chairs where adults can sit, relax and order food or a coffee from our café Paddy and Scott's, while the kids play.
Our soft play has its own dedicated accessible toilet and baby changing facilities. Riverside is also a Breastfeeding Welcome centre.
Opening times remain the same during the school holidays, unless stated otherwise.
We recommend that you book our popular soft play in advance. You can get a ticket on the door, however we cannot guarantee availability.
