Robert contacted ESP Play Parks following a flood during the winter of 2019 which destroyed their existing play area. Although the existing site worked well and was very popular they highlighted that it needs more modern and exciting equipment moving forward. Following our site survey it was shown that the current play surfacing was holding water in the play area with poor drainage.
Following our on-site meeting with Ian Hindler, our in-house playground design team went to work on designing a natural play area that would also improve physical fitness and wellbeing. Targeted at a wide age range and covering all abilities we designed a 50m long trim trail assault course which had various sections from Toddler, Intermediate and Advanced sections.
We also designed a basket swing into the area which is open to a wide range of abilities and ages.
To keep the natural theme running throughout the play area, we went for grass matting safety surfacing throughout. This allows the grass to ground naturally while also providing a safety surfacing for the play equipment to comply with regulations.
Completion Date – December 2020
Budget – £55,000
