Open Ayre

Open Ayre is an outdoor play attraction comprising three distinct areas: Energise play park, Salt Ayre Drive mini balance-bike and diddy car play village, and Tee Time mini-golf. Energise and Salt Ayre Drive are both designed for under-eights, with Tee Time being suitable for all of the family to enjoy.

We really wanted to add to our already bustling centre and provide something outdoors that the little people in your life can enjoy. We hope you like it!


Our brand new outdoor play park, Energise, is now open - a great way for little ones to burn off steam whilst getting some much needed fresh air!

Energise is part of the brand new outdoor play area, Open Ayre, at Salt Ayre Leisure Centre. Designed for under-eights, it’s completely free to use and encourages imaginative and co-operative play. The equipment in Energise is extra special as it is made out of sustainable, organic resources meaning we are doing our bit for our environment, as well as our local community!

Please note children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
