The Pod

Grass Hoppers is all about kids enjoying a fantastic playtime and that often means getting grubby in the process so we know it’s important to have all the amenities and facilities in place.

Whether its sandy toes, sticky fingers or mucky chops – it’s now really easy to get squeaky clean in our supersized changing room with plenty of sinks and changing cubicles!

You’ll also find plenty of toilets located inside, lockers for storage and plenty of space! And we know how awkward prams can be at times so there’s are extra wide aisles for easy access throughout Grass Hoppers, as well as child friendly parking bays.



Adults must supervise children in their care at all times. We can accept no responsibility for any injuries or loss howsoever caused.
