    Welcome to ESP Play Parks

    We Specialises in the design, manufacturing, and installation of outdoor play equipment across the UK and worldwide. Exceptional playground design ignites the imagination of children of all ages, fostering physical and cognitive development through play. ESP Play Parks is dedicated to crafting captivating play environments that are not only functionally stimulating but also visually appealing.

    Every child is unique, with their own personality and strengths, yet they all share an innate desire to play. This includes children with disabilities who have the same aspirations when it comes to playgrounds. Play areas must be exhilarating, distinctive, and offer a diverse range of activities for enjoyment with friends and family.

    Our Philosophy & Principles

    Inclusive play and comprehensive design are central tenets of our design philosophy and principles. Our approach to designing play areas is all-encompassing, welcoming users of all ages and abilities. An inclusive ethos at ESP Play Parks doesn’t mean that every child can play on every piece of equipment, but it does mean that every child should have the opportunity to play on something. Every child matters!!!

    Ensuring equitable access to and usage of playgrounds is a fundamental responsibility. We firmly believe that our design and product solutions fulfill the key objectives of any project in terms of play value, aesthetics, and the “wow” factor.

    Play is constantly evolving

    Children remain the experts in the realm of play within an ever-changing world. Successful play areas are built upon their input, coupled with a specialist understanding of ongoing developments in child development. ESP innovates and develops through extensive research, actively listening to and observing children at play. These are the foundational pillars of our approach to play area design.

    We continuously engage in and commission research into the benefits of play and child development. Child approval and our specialist insights into play value underpin our design process, ensuring that ESP equipment meets the criteria of attraction, retention, and play value.

    The importance of inclusivity

    Inclusive Play designs encompass products and equipment that enable children of all abilities to participate on the playground. Inclusive play equipment provides choices and challenges, allowing children to play, laugh, and learn together. Our in-house design team is wholly dedicated to inclusive play and strives to make all playgrounds accessible to children of every ability, age, and gender.

    Children with limited mobility should never be excluded from any playground. Our playgrounds encourage children of all abilities to play together, promote social interaction, and enhance mental and physical well-being.

    Project Focus: Coate Water Country Park, Swindon

    Case Study: Coate Water Country Park, Swindon

    ESP Play Parks liaised closely with Swindon Borough Council and upon visiting site and completing a full consultation realised this was not a standard Play Area but a hugely important community project that was at the heart of what ESP Play Parks strive for. The chosen positioning for the new Play Area required extensive groundworks to create a level site that would be 100% accessible and upon reading the original specification we knew we could improve on the desire for full inclusive destination play area.

    The ESP Play Parks design team took each element and enhanced the brief to create bespoke inclusive and accessible elements that elevated the Play Area to above and beyond Swindon Borough Councils vision. We incorporated a custom-made centre piece 9 Tower Multi Play unit that encapsulates all the main play values, bespoke built a fully accessible 3 tower ramped unit complete with low level play panels and sand pit. Accessible and Inclusive elements also included a ground flush carousel, sunken trampolines, sensory pathways and musical elements around the site as well as a family zone incorporated flat, cradle, basket and accessible swings.

    The Play Area official opening was supported by ESP Play Parks with children from 3 local schools attending who each received an ESP Play Parks goody bag! The event was attended by reporters from BBC Wiltshire, ITV, Greatest Hits Radio and the Swindon Advertiser along with Mums on a Mission, who were integral to the project.

    Case Study: Dursley Parish Council

    Dursely Parish Council was looking to add a climbing element to their existing playground. Following a public consultation and discussions with local school children, they identified that the Kingshill House Playground was not catering for much climbing play values and also accomodating for junior aged children.

    We visited the site and completed our analysis of the play area before our specialist playground designers got to work. Taking into consideration what the current playground has to offer and how we can incorporate a climbing element. We decided that a Climbing Pyramid would work really well with this space.

    We were conscious that we would need to keep grass and grass matting as the surfacing which then lent itself perfectly for the medium climbing pyramid. This gives some great height, which is exciting, challenging, and adventurous. It is also a great play item that promotes good balance, coordination, stamina, and strength.
