Timber Lodge Café

Nestled in the stunning natural landscape of the north of the Park, this fantastic café  and community centre provides visitors with a relaxing space to sit and chat over a drink and something to eat while the kids discover new adventures in the exciting Tumbling Bay Playground.


The Timber Lodge Café is closed until further notice.

The Timber Lodge Café has been brilliantly designed to blend into the natural landscape and produce its own green energy using solar panels. Inside, the café and events space offers all the facilities and refreshments you need on a day out at the Park, and its outdoor terrace is an ideal spot to sit and relax in the sun.


The café space is open daily, offering everything from a full-on fry-up to a fresh deli sandwich menu and home-made cakes. Tea and coffee is available as well as a selection of premium wines and beers - perfect to enjoy indoors with a stunning view of the Park, or out on the terrace on a sunny summer's day. It's perfect for kids too, with a child-friendly menu and the added bonus of being next door to the Tumbling Bay adventure playground where they can play in the sandpit, build a den, discover insects and roam the walkways among the treetops. 

Events and private hire

The Timber Lodge has an incredibly bright and airy events space that opens out into the beautiful surrounding parkland. It has its own entrance with the option of an indoor or outdoor dispense bar.

    Three dedicated Blue Badge parking spaces are available for visitors to the Timber Lodge and Tumbling Bay Playground located on Olympic Park Avenue, directly adjacent to the venue.  

    Please note, these are on-street parking spaces and we are currently in the process of increasing the number of permanent dropped kerbs along this street. 

    The Timber Lodge and the Tumbling Bay playground won the 2014 Civic Trust Award and the Selwyn Goldsmith Award for Universal Design for its approach to accessibility, of which we are very proud.
