Mr Ribble’s Family Playground

Welcome to Mr Ribble’s Family Playground

You may have noticed something pretty special for young visitors tucked away behind the main building but still intriguingly close to the rail tracks. Mr Ribble’s Family Playground offers little ones the opportunity to safely play while overlooking our beautiful vintage trains.  It’s an ideal spot to watch the trains on the move as they travel along our Riverside Docklands Line. 

Our playground has a range of  delightful high quality play pieces and picnic tables so that  you can all take time out and relax together in our creative outdoor space.

Take time to play, chat and relax  … waving as the trains go by.

Our play area has been a labour of love; designed and constructed by our enthusiastic volunteer team.

 Mr Ribble’s Family Playground is suitable for children aged 2 – 10 years.

Please remember, all children need to be cared for and accompanied by a parent or guardian.



We are dog friendly at Ribble and welcome your four legged friends, however please note that only assistance dogs are allowed in the play area for safety reasons.

We ask you to please respect others while enjoying your visit to the play area.
