Children's Wood: Outdoor Learning Club

by Jemma Fletcher (follow)
A great opportunity for families to play and explore together!

Glasgow has many parks and gardens to improve children’s access to the outdoors. However, despite these efforts, they are underused, especially during the colder months.

The Outdoor Learning Club focuses on helping families to access nature all year round and to counteract the indoor culture, which many children are growing up in.


The Saturday morning Outdoor Learning Club at the Children’s Wood provides the opportunity for children and families to play and learn outdoors.

The sessions are organised and facilitated by 9 volunteers from the local community of Maryhill/North Kelvin and all volunteers have some level of Forest School training. The sessions are free-flowing and child led.

At the Outdoor Learning Club your child can:

Build dens
Make environmental art
Plant trees and flowers
Use ropes, Use tools
Enjoy unstructured free play
Build fires
Take part in other outdoor activities

"My kids and I love to head down to the meadow to explore, to play, to learn and to hang out. It provides us with lots of carefree outdoor fun, and also an important sense of community."

Children of all ages are welcome – all you need to do is turn up! It is a great opportunity for families to play and explore together and meet other like-minded people from the area.

When: Every Saturday 10am - 12pm

Where: The Children's Wood and North Kelvin Meadow, Kelbourne St, Glasgow G20 8PR
