BH Live Active Soft Play Areas

Enjoy soft play with your children at one of four centres across Bournemouth, Poole & Portsmouth.


About our Soft Play Areas

Soft play at our various sites is a great way for under 5s to explore, build confidence and burn off energy. Depending on their age and confidence, it’s a chance for you to grab a refreshing cup of tea or coffee at the Terrace café – and leave them to it for a while. You never know, you may even get 5 minutes to relax.
