Baggeridge Adventure has added a brand new 13ft bouldering wall to its outdoor adventure facilities, in time for its reopening on Good Friday (2nd April).
Based at Baggeridge Country Park, Baggeridge Adventure is the place for outdoor fun for all ages and abilities, with different challenges including a high ropes, nets and obstacle course to test everyone from mini adventures to the young at heart.
Last year, parent company Challenge Academy CIC (Community Interest Company), was awarded a £48,000 grant from Sport England and £30,000 from Enovert Community Trust, to further develop Baggeridge Adventure with the addition of new adventure activities and make the site more accessible to people with disabilities.
The addition of the climbing wall, which is included in the centre’s entry ticket along with the obstacle course, completes the first phase of the new adventure activities it has planned as part of the grants.
Last year, the adventure specialist also built an obstacle course on site with over 15 different ground based challenges designed to test visitors’ balance, determination and physical skills, which proved popular with visitors of all ages.
Challenge Academy Managing Director, Mel Ellis, said: “We can’t wait to open for the Easter holidays and give visitors the chance to have a go at our latest challenge. We were able to open last Summer, in line with Government guidelines, following the national lockdown and we remained open until the end of October. All our facilities are outdoor but we have also put a number of measures in place to ensure we are Covid secure.”
Sessions must be booked online to guarantee entry, as the number of visitors on our site will be limited to comply with social distancing measures.
As a Community Interest Company, Challenge Academy provides outdoor adventures for all ages and abilities and all of its profits are used to develop the site and continually improve the range of activities on offer.
