Welcome

The fields, woods and green spaces of the Almond Valley site extend for nearly a mile either side of the river Almond. At its heart lies the old buildings of Livingston Mill and the nearby Mill Farm which is home to all manner of friendly animals who are always happy to meet you.

There's a big variety of unique and imaginative play spaces set among the meadows and woodland, with loads to see and do, no matter the weather. We’re particularly proud of our new Paraffin Works play area set beneath a giant umbrella.

There's indoor soft play beside our wonderful tearoom, and the shale oil museum with fascinating interactive displays. It’s a brilliant family day out; come along and find out for yourself.

Coming Soon.... The Ruined Peel

Now under construction

The Ruined Peel will be an amazing three-storey play environment that evokes the mystery and adventure of exploring a tumbledown Scottish tower house. Along a network of shadowy passageways and mysterious chambers you can wind your way up to the high battlements from where you return to the earth down slides or across rope bridges. If you’re an action hero you can climb, clamber and balance, but there’s much more to engage your senses, imagination, and emotions during your journey of discovery. Different routes through the structure suit different temperaments and abilities, including a fully accessible route through the lower parts of the peel tower. Everyone can contribute in their own way towards the fun and collaboration of play.

We hope that the Peel will be ready for opening sometime in July 2024 – we’ll keep you updated as work progresses
