Age Group: 1 - 12 years old
Product Range: Corocord, MOMENTS Schoolage, Swings, Ground Trampoline

The playground has a strong focus on climbing, suitable for the older age group, with the Corocord Octanet, a large rope climbing structure and the Bloqx 3 a unique unit with different climbing angles and panels.
The playground also included a triple tower multi play unit which offers versatile play on an elevated and ground level. This was complemented by swings to suit all ages and abilities, an inground trampoline, a hammock, springer and seesaw.
"The new play area has had a very positive effect on the local community with many endorsements from the community. First comments on entering the new play are "WOW", which was one of the main objectives outlined at the start.
Over the summer holiday period the equipment was heavily used and enjoyed by children and parents alike. The new play area helped to build a great community spirit. It is great to have a play area that the council are proud of."
