Our Centre

Boomerang was founded in November 2007 by a group of parents and carers of disabled children in the Bury area.

Finding places to take these children, who have various and complex learning difficulties, to play was a problem. The usual venues such as Wacky Warehouse, Bowling and other play centres were not always suitable due to lack of wheelchair access, noise and many other problems. A lot of these special people find busy, noisy, fun places overwhelming, and are often upset by the kind of things that able-bodied children love.


Within easy reach of Bury, Bolton, Oldham, Rochdale and other parts of Lancashire & Greater Manchester – and with three high quality play rooms, children of all abilities will have great fun. Please do not hesitate to contact the centre to discuss specific requirements.

Birthday parties are available every Saturday and Sunday.

Exclusive use of the centre can be arranged.
