Otter’s Reach Indoor Adventure provides an all-weather experience and an educational resource for younger visitors aged 3 and upwards to a maximum height of 1.3m.

Make the most of your journey through Whisby– from its origins as Whisby Pits to the attraction and wildlife haven it is today. The area allows younger visitors to explore and experience the park’s history through imaginative play and includes a gravel plant with hands on features, bullrush stilt posts, spiders web climb, raptors’ nest and more.


These adventure areas are completely FREE for all the family to enjoy.


You can enjoy a coffee and a delicious cake whilst watching your children play at Otter’s Café.

Covid 19 Updates

Following the guidance set out by the Government we have had to substantially lower our capacity and can now only permit 14 people into the play area. This includes all children and adults that enter the space. We ask that per child, there is only one accompanying adult with a maximum of two. 

We are also operating with 45 minute time slots so that we can clean the area between sessions. We are only permitting entry to the play area for the first 15 minutes of the time slot. The sessions are as follows:

Updated Play Slots 

  • 9.30am – 10.15am
  • 10.30am – 11.15am
  • 11.30am – 12.15pm
  • 12.30pm – 1.15pm
  • 1.30pm - 2.15pm
  • 2.30pm - 3.15pm
  • 3.30pm – 4.15pm

Covid 19 Safety

Everybody entering the play area must sanitise their hands, even if you have done this when entering the building. All adults must give test and trace details to a member of staff, or by scanning the QR code using the NHS Covid-19 app. You will still be required to do this for Otters Reach if you have already signed in to the Bistro as it is a separate area.

If you choose to leave the play area for any reason during your visit you will not be permitted to re-enter, this is to cut down on any potential cross contamination from different areas. If one adult is accompanying a child for their play slot they must not swap throughout the session or allow anybody else in unless a member of staff has approved this.


The Centre’s toilets are fully accessible, and are open from 9am for visitors to the Nature Park. There are changing areas in all toilets. Toilets open 9.30am - 5pm.


Cash car parking charges apply daily, 10am to 4pm. March to October – £2. 

November to February – £1. Please ensure you display a valid ticket.
