Activities for active grandchildren
Here are some of our top tips, ideas, and activities for entertaining active grandchildren in Dorset.
Burn off energy at the beach
When it comes to entertaining active grandchildren in Dorset we’re lucky that we’re close to some fantastic beaches. Sitting back and watching the grandchildren burn off energy by running up and down the beach sounds like an activity that both grandparents and active grandchildren can enjoy. For a list of some of the best beaches in Dorset have a look at the Beach Guide, which lists such gems as Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove. Click here to view the Beach Guide.
Why Dorset Waterpark is suitable for your grandchildren
While an adult has to give their consent for their children to take part, children over 12 can enjoy the water park without adult supervision. This makes it a great place for entertaining the grandchildren as the grandparents can just sit back and relax while the kids enjoy an active day out.
A safe and enjoyable environment
No matter whether an adult is accompanying children aged under 12 or if those aged over 12 are exploring the waterpark on their own, it is a safe and enjoyable environment for all. Our team of experienced lifeguards make your visit to Dorset Waterpark not only a safe one but also a thoroughly enjoyable one.
What can I expect at Dorset Waterpark?
Dorset Waterpark is a fantastic day out for active grandchildren. Your grandchildren get a one-hour session on the lakes, 30 minutes on each lake, plenty enough time for your grandchildren to burn off their energy. After they have burned off all that energy we have a Snack Shack serving hot food and drinks, perfect for satisfying hungry grandchildren. We have wetsuits to hire for an additional £5 and shoes for hire for an additional £2.
Dorset Mud Trail
If Dorset Waterpark is not what your grandchildren are looking for then there is Dorset Mud Trail. Dorset Mud Trail is a brand new adventure from the people behind Dorset Waterpark. Set in the grounds of Dorset Waterpark, Dorset Mud Trail is a fantastic 1.5 km trail under, over and through a fantastic range of muddy objects. It is suitable for those aged under five, making it perfect for younger grandchildren.
