Staunton Country Park, Hampshire

Havant, Hampshire

Staunton Country Park in Hampshire needed a themed play area that would reflect the woodland feel of the broader area.

Project Brief
Hampshire County Council sought an exciting and woodland-themed playground that would encourage creativity and pretend play, and physical activity. Meanwhile, the play area needed to provide visitors to Staunton with a fun and relaxing end to their day, or an attractive place to take a break.


The Result
Nestled among woodland and barn conversions, the Robinia-based playground retains the country park's atmosphere. Children can enjoy the feel of a tree house in KOMPAN's Robinia junior multi-unit, imagine they are floating on a lake in the Chinese punt boat and play farmer in the large wooden tractor. Spinner bowls, springers, double swings and a climbing net offer high activity opportunities and encourage balance, strength and core development. Chipped bark completes the woodland feel and provides a safe surface for the children.

"Worked together closely to overcome any challenges through the works. Positive impact for new customers and existing members. Families are staying longer and enjoying the play facilities. A new lease of life to the area."
