Scarborough Kinderland was a children's amusement park which was closed late september to allow redevlopment as part of the Sands project which also includes attractions already lost, Atlantis and the Corner Cafe. Kinderland was little more than a large adventure playground but was also home to a rare water chute ride and several indoor play facilities and amenities, such as first aid and cafe.
What makes the loss of Kinderland sad is it was an 'old school' type adventure playground (anyone remember the original 'fort william' at lightwater valley) and not one of the modern ultra safe, but no fun, things that are springing up everywhere.
Therefore, on this warm, bright Autumn day it seemed quite sad to be walking around this place. I came across the new owner on my way out.
Something about this slide seemed particularly destructive, with the buildings in the background having boarded windows.
Equipment being cut up for fence posts or firewood.
Slide with section missing
Facilities have been provided elsewhere for the Great Crested Newts that bred in this pond
'Very special pond'

I have a few more pictures to upload showing the interior of some of the buildings.
