A new soft play area for children aged eight and under is now open in Shrewsbury’s Darwin Shopping Centre.

Darwin’s Den is free to use and is run by Shrewsbury Shopping Centres in association with Little Rascals and Shrewsbury Town in the Community. The wall art was designed by local author and illustrator Emma Lawrence.

Alongside the soft play equipment, there are table and chairs to give parents and carers somewhere to sit and rest while their children play – as well as tables and chairs for little ones. People are invited to bring their own food and drink.

Darwin’s Den will be open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm, and on Sundays from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

Located on the middle level of the centre next to Marks & Spencer, Darwin’s Den was officially opened yesterday (Thursday 11 April 2019) by Shrewsbury Mayor Councillor Peter Nutting. The Little Rascals Foundation is this year’s Mayor’s Charity.
