Extra play with your stay photo  - Extra Play With Your Stay

6 January 2015

Whatever the weather, the Pod at YMCA Hawker is a great destination for parents and carers planning a day out with lots of exciting activities for the kids.

Here, children aged 0-11 can climb, jump, swing, stretch, wriggle, balance and bounce in the two-storey installation, whilst parents/carers enjoy a coffee and a snack from the cafe.  

Extra play – every day!

This winter, we are offering “extra play with your stay” every day of the week.
