Oasis Playspace is a fully-equipped children’s centre, with indoor & outdoor space, masses of toys and activities to keep everyone entertained! We’re in Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, near the Imperial War Museum – click here to find us on Google Maps.
It is home to our very popular drop in stay & play sessions Bibs & Bots, aimed at preschool aged children (0-5) and their parents/carers, as well as the Small Project, Community Fridge, and lots of family sports activities.
We also run a variety of half-term and holiday activities for whole families and look to facilitate wider community events across the year alongside the park managers and Friends of GMH Park.
Over the coming months we are hoping to develop what we are able to offer to make the Playspace as accessible as possible to all families across the community.
This includes supportive provision for young parents, working alongside local health visitors and St Thomas’ Hospital, as well as activities for specific ages and needs (babies, disabled children).
We also hope to support parents struggling with their mental health, as well as classes for fitness and educational courses for parents.
Our vision is that the Playspace can play a central role in facilitating those all important social and support networks for parents and whole families in the community. Through a whole range of provision, we hope to engage families from across our diverse community, as well as inspire parents to join in by using the space to facilitate the activities and groups too.
Being part of the wider Waterloo Hub means that we are able to signpost any families needing more specific support into a variety of relevant services – from a Foodbank to Debt Advice, schools for their children to adult education courses, choirs and fitness.
The Playspace can also be hired out for parties, so if you’re looking for a venue to celebrate – look no further! Rates are below:
