We are thrilled to open our new play area in the Pinetum. Storms Arwen and Barra brought down lots of trees in the Botanic Garden- this meant that we could use their timber to make something unique, and an adventurous way for people to explore this part of the Garden and its trees.

Bespoke made by Sam Green, the Exploratree is full of individual quirks, celebrating the individual nature of each piece of timber. The Exploratree is designed for 6-12 year olds but is fun for everyone and we hope you enjoy climbing the ropes and beams.

The Exploratree was made possible by the generous support of the Kilrymont Rotary Club and St Andrews Community Trust. Stay tuned for more adventures for younger years too!
