There is a fort adventure playground named Fort Knebworth. It is an enclosed wooden play area with slides, tunnels, zip wires and multi-levels to play on. They have three big slides, a drop slide, helter-skelter slide and a bumpy slide. (height restrictions).
At the other end of the park, there is the house, dinosaur trail, gardens and a maze. It takes around 15 minutes to walk between the two but you can park your car at either. There is also an old courtesy bus which runs between the playground and the house. Around the grounds they have statues of animals, the maze is relatively large and made of hedges.
There are many different dinosaurs to find on their trail with information boards about each one. You can also make some of them roar. There is plenty to see in the house with knowledgeable team members in each of the rooms. It is a Tudor stately home and has been home to the Lytton family since 1490.
