The Wriggle & Scribble Playground

A Brand New Playground

This summer, A Line Art (in conjunction with The Spring and Meridian Shopping Centre) are putting play back on the map as they invite you and your family to move, shake, scribble, shuffle, hop, bop, dance, star jump and wriggle your way onto a brand new illustrated playground in Meridian Shopping Centre.

This larger than life playground is for everyone; children, adults and everyone in between to connect and share a moment of play. 

Step into a colourful place of possibility and wonderment, as the playground stimulates your imagination and senses….

  • Take a deep breath and keep your balance over the zig zags
  • Dance your way on the water drops from the giant tap
  • Untangle your mind in the giant Relaxation flower
  • Slide your way across the wormy wiggle line 
  • Stamp or shuffle your way across the giant footprints.

What time does the playground open and close?

The playground will officially open on Friday 23rd July for a LIMITED TIME only.

The playground is open throughout the week:

Monday – Saturday: 9.00am – 5.30pm

Sunday: 10.00am – 4.00pm

In a busy shopping centre, there might be times when some of the playground is being used by other people. On Wednesdays throughout August, the playground will be partially covered by other family-friendly activities. Havant’s Big Green Week (18th – 26th September) will also include some events in the same area as the playground.

How much does it cost?

Nothing – it’s totally free!

Play Safe

We want to ensure that all playground goers have a safe experience. Please note that the playground isn’t supervised and we ask parents and guardians to accompany and supervise the children in their lives in and around the playground at all times. 

The Wriggle & Scribble Playground has been generously supported by Farnham Maltings, as part of the New Popular programme.
