More about Richard MacVicar Adventure Playground

Richard MacVicar Adventure Playground, Deptford is one of the oldest of its kind with some of the tallest play structures in London. In 2015 the playground was re-named the Richard MacVicar Adventure Playground in honour of ‘Mac,’ a much loved and long serving manager of the site from 1978-2012. His ethos was to “create positive memories of childhood through creative play” which lives on through the current dedicated and passionate team.

It may look a bit worse for wear but the APG continues to be a very popular Youth First site as the current team continues what worked for generations whilst also adapting with the times. This particular APG provides open access adventure play with indoor and outdoor activities, including the largest e-sports screen in Youth First, one of two Youth First climbing walls and a fiercely competitive football team.

The passionate and committed staff builds strong relationships with those who attend, ensuring a supportive and empowering environment where young people can have fun, learn and grow together.
