Archallagan plantation is located in the middle of the Island just outside of Foxdale and St Johns. It is popular for its cycle trails, picnic areas and children’s play equipment (including the Mooinjer Veggey (Little People) Trail installed in 2023 with the help of Zurich International).

There are three free car parks and the best to use for the ‘Spider Play Park’ is either the Main Car Park (///attic.longshot.aware) which would mean a little walk up to the play area or the original car park towards the north east corner of the plantation (///endorses.carnivore.guarded) which is closest to the play area.

It’s obviously a plantation and so although there are paths, the terrain is rocky and may not be suitable for a standard pram.

The Mooinjer Veggey (Little People) Trail is closer to the Main Car Park and takes you into the plantation, off the path, to find many colourful and beautifully decorated fairy doors.

The Spider Play Area (///veteran.dwindled.struts) was revamped slightly in 2023 and is now enclosed with a fence (almost fully with bushes and trees enclosing the rest). It consists of the giant wooden spider (of course!), a spider web climbing frame, some wooden motorbikes, a spring rocker, a wooden side swing and some other wooden sit on items.

Just outside the enclosed area, there are a few small ‘dens’ made into the trees which our eldest enjoyed playing in.

There are mountain bike trails all over the plantation, some for juniors and some for bigger ones but if play areas aren’t your thing then it’s well worth a visit with the bikes!
