    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: Holker Estate Holiday Parks

    Case Study: Holker Estate Holiday Parks

    At Holker Estate Holiday Parks they were looking to add some new play equipment as well as an outdoor Gym Facility.  They have never had an outdoor Gym Facility at their holiday parks before and have been requested by their customers.  Having an outdoor space where people can do their warm-up exercises before going for a run is what people are looking for when they are booking a weekend or week away in the Lake District. At our first meeting with Holker Estate to discuss their plans, they didn’t have a specific area to put the outdoor gym facility.

    The holiday has plenty of space to utilise but they also wanted to keep everything easily accessible. We have designed the outdoor gym facility to be built into different areas around the holiday park.  This would therefore encourage residents to walk around the holiday park grounds and would also stop the gym facility from looking busy which would discourage some people from using the equipment. Encouraging residents to get out and be more active and also having well-located gym equipment so people can exercise with some amazing views of the Lake District and the Lakeland fells.

    Project Focus: The Meadows Petting Farm

    Call Us Now To Discuss Your Project

    Case Study: The Meadows Petting Farm

    The Meadows is a petting farm in Caerphilly Wales which opened in 2020. It is a great outdoor family attraction with a cafe and restaurant. They also offer educational days out for schools, so it can get very busy at peak times. They were looking to install a natural playground to cater to junior-aged children. There was a sandpit area in the location where they wanted to new playground which needed to be removed. They are wanting to have some traditional play equipment and also cater to children with limited mobility.

    Our design team designed a low-maintenance, natural playground with traditional play equipment. We used our Fawcett Play Tower which has lots of different play values for junior-aged children and also offers some challenging play for younger children. The Fawcett Play Tower offers sliding, climbing, tunneling, 2x Wobble Bridges, Climbing Net, and Climbing Wall. We also added a Nest Swing which is great for all children and all abilities. The Nest Swing encourages group play but can also be used individually. With everything being natural play and a natural-looking playground, we decided that Grass Matting would be the best option when it comes to the Playground Safety Surfacing. This will allow the grass to grow through the Grass Matting which therefore gives the playground a natural feel while adhering to the playground regualtions.
