Fairlop Waters

With the help of the Nature Conservation Team and suggestions we received from children both online and in the press, our new indoor play area has been named - Owls Play Centre.

Come and visit this exciting new facility for children. Suitable for children aged 6 months to 12 years and their accompanying adults.  Babies and toddlers will be safe and secure in our separate soft play area, whilst the older children can benefit from exploring the bigger play equipment.

Children remain the responsibility of their accompanying adult and should not be left at the centre unattended.

There is a cafeteria inside where you will be able to purchase hot and cold food.  We will also be catering for birthday parties, please speak to staff at reception during opening hours.
