A family friendly play space in the heart of south west London

Infinite Playgrounds were commissioned to transform Suffolk Road recreation ground into a memorable and attractive facility for the local community to enjoy. The client’s brief required us to include a subtle widlife and water theme as the recreation ground is located in Barnes, close to both the River Thames and Wetlands Centre.
The finished product

A similar project to this would cost £90,000

The new play space comprises of several different areas to appeal to a wide range of ages and abilities:

Younger Children’s Zone - This area includes a large sandpit featuring a natural climbing structure with slide, a wobbly trout boat, dinosaur bones to dig down and discover and an interactive jetty with tipping bowl, wooden chute and vertical pulley. In addition to this we have also included a bespoke ‘Tree Lab’ for children to engage in explorative play as they collect and gather natural found materials.

Older Children’s Zone - A bespoke challenging climbing structure featuring a series of raised nets, scramble beams, fireman’s pole, stainless steel slide, monkey bars and a climbing wall.

Sunken Trampoline - A large sunken trampoline for all ages to enjoy!

Seating - A series of bespoke tables and benches create spaces for families to have picnics, while smaller benches placed around the play elements form the perfect place for adults to sit and watch their children play.

Swing Zone - An accessible upright seat swing, a set of cradle swings and a set of flat seat swings have been installed into attractive robinia A-frames, suitable for all ages and abilities.

The Infinite playground is a fantastic new play space for Barnes. It has been really busy since it opened and lots of people have commented on how beautiful, unique and creative it is. The higher, challenging clamber nets and climbing frame have been successful in attracting older children and everyone loves the sandpit, trampoline and gorgeous wooden sculptures.
