This public space was transformed with our engaging play equipment

We were invited to tender for the new play area at Chivalry Road in September 2018. The existing equipment at the site was colourful, old and tired and the council were keen to create an area with a more natural feel that would blend in with the green space of Wandsworth Common.

As part of the development of this new space we engaged in a public consultation in which we presented three variations of the vision we had for development of the area. The public vote was counted and the most popular design chosen for development. After a little fine-tuning to ensure the design met all the outlined requirements we were delighted to be awarded the contract in November 2018 with the project set to start early in the new year.

The final design included a challenging timber climbing structure in the central area of the space offering a vast range of exciting play opportunities for older children. Surrounding this central structure we provided a broad selection of additional features, from inclusive swings and giant spinning disks to see-saws and mounds.

The final product

A similar project to this would cost £155,000

The final design included a challenging timber climbing structure in the central area of the space offering a vast range of exciting play opportunities for older children. Surrounding this central structure we provided a broad selection of additional features, from inclusive swings and giant spinning disks to see-saws and mounds. Within the woodland area at the north of the site we created a space perfect for imaginative play through the inclusion of several role-play tepees and our trademark ‘tree lab’. To give the design a complete and uniform feel we also provided a new rubber mulch safety-surface and multiple seating options throughout the site. The end result is a quality play space for children of all ages, which has been incredibly popular with the local community.

“I am really pleased that the final designs for this playground and new play equipment were chosen by local people when we staged our public consultation last year so these improvements should be very popular with local families and our youngest residents.”
