A playground, tailor-made to the heritage, attracts more visitors
The KOMPAN playground fits in perfectly to the setting at Normanby Hall Country Park. It actually has to, because Normanby Hall is listed as a heritage site. Normanby Hall is a fine Regency mansion in North Lincolnshire owned by the Sheffield family, former Dukes of Buckingham, and the original owners of Buckingham Palace.
Today, the hall is cared for by the local council and is a popular day out for locals and tourists alike. The local council had a wish to make the park attractive for families to visit and also come back to. Lately, the number of visitors has tripled, and to achieve this, the new KOMPAN playground was a key.
Location: Normanby, Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire
Date of Installation: June 2018
Age Group: All ages
Product Range: Simply Play, Robinia, Sand Play, Corocord, School-Age Moments
Project Value: £250,000
KOMPAN designers worked tightly within rules governing colours, height and size to make a Normanby-themed playground that follows heritage guidelines and looks into the history of the community.
The playground has a wide variety of equipment to offer play activities for all ages and many children at the same time. The thrill can be obtained in the mega deck play tower or the fast cableway, and social play takes place in the Corocord Performer Dome that can hold up to 52 playing children at the same time.
KOMPAN was creative, they listened to what we wanted to do and offered suggestions. (...) nothing was too much trouble.
