A children's adventure park billed as one of the most exciting in west London is set to open at a public golf course in Hounslow.
The new attraction, featuring indoor and outdoor play facilities and exotic animals alongside a revamped nine-hole golf course and club house, would replace Hounslow Heath Golf Course.
Hounslow Council, which owns the 120-acre site in Staines Road, has granted a 125-year lease to Hobbledown, which already runs a similar attraction in Epsom.
A zip-line course and high ropes would be among the activities at the new venue, which is due to open in early 2017, subject to planning permission being granted.
A children's nursery and a water splash area would be part of the second phase of the new £9 million park, which is expected to create 180 jobs once open.
Councillor Sachin Gupta, the council's leisure chief, said: "Hobbledown promises to be one of the most exciting children's leisure parks in west London - there is nothing to match it locally.
"The development will transform this poorly used area into a top visitor attraction and popular activity centre for local people."
The 18-hole pay-and-play golf course opened in 1979 but was put up for sale by the council last year after a sharp fall in the number of visitors.
Hobbledown Adventure Park, named after the elf-like woodland creatures - the Hobblers - which are said to inhabit it, opened in Epsom in July 2012.
A spokeswoman for Hobbledown, where entry costs between £3.50 and £7.95, said it had chosen the site in Hounslow for the undulating beauty of the natural landscape. She said it was rare to get such a sense of country escapism within London.
She added that it expected around 280,000 visitors a year at its new venue - similar to the numbers at its existing park.
