Chelt Walk Play AreaParks & Walks
- Under 5s
- School age
Chelt Wak Play is best accessed from Princess Elizabeth Way (opposite the side entrance to Smyths Toys). There is a small, enclosed play area, suitable for toddlers and primary aged children. There’s a train shaped climbing frame and some swings. Outside the enclosure, there is also a large, stone climbing area, suitable for school age older children.
As well as the play area, Chelt Walk park has trees to climb and explore in and a stream with bridges that are perfect for playing Pooh sticks. If you’re lucky, you might also see a football match being played, or train go by as the footpath takes you round the edge of the park.
There’s another play area next to the YMCA gym, which is suitable for older children.

The kids and I tried to go to Kilkenny Viewpoint back in lockdown, but the postcode I found kept taking me to a farm and in the end we gave up and went to good old Lineover instead! 😂 Today, armed with a grid reference instead of a postcode, we found it! It’s a small reserve with a short trail around it, some pretty awesome trees to climb and some cool hills to play amongst. It was so nice to be out in the fresh air after last weekend’s washout! Grid Reference: SP004185 Car Park? Yes. Large and free. Toilets? No. Buggy friendly? Not really. It’s quite steep and there’s loads of cow pat to avoid. A sling or carrier would definitely be best. #glosfamilydaysout #familydayout #kilkennyviewpoint #andoversford #gloucestershire #visitgloucestershire #outdoorsandhappy #outsideisfree #freshairiscalling #exploretheoutdoorswithus #littleadventuredays #teamgore #familytime #littlehotdogwatson #warmwellies #supportsmallbusiness #cows #views #horse #climbingtrees #autumnvibes #autumn #littlewanderingwellies #wheremywelliestakeme #101thingsthatmakemesmile #countrykidsfun #pinklinker
