An adventure playground up in the trees
One day we thought to ourselves – if we built an adventure playground, what would it be like? We dreamed of tree houses linked by netted walkways 30 feet above the forest floor, with tree top nets full of inflatable balls and slides to get you back to the ground in style. This all sounded like a whirlwind of fun, so we decided to build it at Black Park Country Park and Sherwood Pines.
Welcome to Nets Kingdom. It's a refreshing alternative to stuffy indoor play centres, where the whole family can enjoy an endless supply of fresh air in the great British outdoors. Adventure never smelled so good! All of the nets are completely enclosed - the jumbo hammock-like netting will keep you all as safe as treehouses and absolutely no specialist equipment is required.
All ages are welcome, meaning that Nets Kingdom really can be a great family activity. If your legs start to tire or you would simply prefer to leave others to it, you can enjoy a freshly ground coffee and a selection of nibbles from the nearby cafe just a stone’s throw away. Delve into the world of high nets and tree top trampolines with Nets Kingdom.

WHO CAN GO ON NETS KINGDOM
- Anyone over 1 year old - see below for supervision ratios. We regularly have toddlers who take part and have a great time, however, the experience may not be suitable when the course is occupied with lots of energetic older children. We endeavour to keep one tree top net to a more relaxed atmosphere, aiming for a safe and fun experience for toddlers.
- The first sessions in the morning, or last in the afternoon tend to be the quietest. At Black Park we offer Tots in the Tree Tops - a toddlers-only session on a Friday morning during term time.
- Children aged 5-15 – supervision is required, either from the ground or in the nets. Supervision ratios can be seen below.
- Children aged 16+ can explore Nets Kingdom unaccompanied - no adults needed!
- Max weight: 130KG / 20.5 Stone.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
- You're welcome to stay as long as you wish, but to manage capacity in very busy periods we may need to restrict sessions to two hours.
- Nets Kingdom will close two hours after the last safety brief of the day. Check availability and session times to get an idea of when we'll be closing on the day you plan on visiting.
- You'll be issued with a wrist band displaying the time that you completed your safety brief. This will allow you to the leave the area for a toilet break, lunch or just to get your breath back. Simply show your wristband for re-entry.
