UK children’s play centre operator DP Leisure (DPL) has continued the expansion of its 360 Play children’s play centre brand with the opening of its fourth and largest venue, this time in Basildon in Essex.

Following the ongoing success of its sites in Milton Keynes, Stevenage and Leicester, DPL has continued the roll out of what is one of the UK’s leading children’s play centre brands by opening its largest venue to date at the Festival Leisure Park, Basildon.

As with the existing sites, design and master planning of this latest project, which is housed within a 28,000sq.ft building, was carried out by DPL’s sister company, DP Associates (DPA), who also project managed the build.

“We have been looking to open a fourth site for some time,” said 360 Play managing director Duncan Phillips, “and having seen the opportunity available in Basildon decided that Festival Leisure Park would be ideal for our next centre.

“We were also impressed with the plans the landlord, Aviva, had for the site in redeveloping it into even more of a family leisure destination and we have become a key part of this project.”

360 Play is a recognised expert in children’s and family entertainment. All its centres are carefully designed to ensure a stimulating, creative, imaginative and active play environment for children aged two to 12, and with everything also designed so that adults can join in too, the venues offer a genuine family day out opportunity.
