State-of-the-art "Pay-to-Play" in Brentwood

The project of a new leisure hub with pavillion, indoor and outdoor play areas, sensory room, tag active, splashpark, and an innovative new 'pay-to-play' area has opened in Brentwood, Essex.

 

The Brief

Brentwood Borough Council worked with leisure developer, Alliance Leisure Services, to rejuvinate an existing leisure hub in the heart of Brentwood. The idea was to inject life and excitement into the area so that it could cater for all ages and families wanting a varied day out.

Following presentations from a number of play equipment providers, Brentwood BC chose KOMPAN because they felt our design provided the ultimate 'WOW' factor for the park; something which is very different from the more traditional play areas in the vicinity.

The design features multiple play levels so that children of any age or ability have the chance to feel included in the unit. It helps to build confidence over time - allowing children to start off on the lower levels and gradually build up confidence and ability to be able to tackle the higher levels and climbing apparatus.

The Result

The finished project is a giant bespoke Sky Walk, with additional corocord elements added for extra play value. The play area currently takes up to 100 children (over 8s) in each 1-hour time slot, providing a safe environment for them to explore and have fun.

The first month has seen over 3500 visitors to the park, and with options to pre-book or pay on the day, that's a trend that is bound to continue as word of mouth spreads.
