Our brand new, 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 10 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.
Soft play sessions can only be booked on the day at Riverside reception or one of the kiosks in the foyer. You cannot book online.
All soft play bookings are for one hour.
