Outdoor play equipment in the UK has long been a staple in many public and private playgrounds.
Since the first playground was built in 1859, in Manchester UK, outdoor play equipment has changed drastically. It now incorporates a wide range of products and amenities to help encourage active outdoor play in children of all ages.
Outdoor play equipment is available in various combinations depending on specific requirements such as location, area size, budget and more.
When designing a playground or outdoor activity area, you need to work closely with experienced professionals to make sure you have covered all of your bases and have created the ideal playground for those who will be using it.
Outdoor play equipment is suitable for many different facilities, from local council-run parks to nurseries, sports clubs, schools, holiday parks and more.
The playground equipment you choose to have installed, can be tailored to a wide range of different uses, from the always fun trim trail that allows children to use a range of skills, to outdoor sports equipment including pitches, targets, goals, and more.
Your outdoor play equipment can also incorporate sand play, water play, and musical boards for users with more specific sensory needs.
In addition, our outdoor equipment is designed and built with safety features as standard, so children can play and relax with friends.
The use of outdoor equipment has played a massive part in children’s physical health across the world for many years. More and more organisations are starting to appreciate the benefits that this can have when it comes to exercise for children.
Aside from allowing children to get outside and benefit from fresh air, outdoor play equipment can help develop vital skills such as coordination, problem-solving, imaginative play and build confidence, as they navigate new challenges on different equipment.
As children run, jump and play on the equipment, their physical health can improve significantly.
The more physical children are, the better their stamina and agility will be, and the more their bodies will be able to develop.
This includes improved bone density, muscles and heart health too. Not only this, playing and having fun is an excellent way for children to work through stress and worries and help them relax and take a break away from busy schedules and routines, in an environment designed for fun and happiness.
The installation of outdoor play equipment starts with a comprehensive plan of the different types of equipment you want, along with all of the safety features required and equipment placements, to maximise space and effectiveness.
Whether you are looking to install the equipment in a school playground, recreation centre, children’s centre, hotel or attraction, product designers will use their extensive skills and knowledge of equipment and safety requirements, to bring your playground to life and ensure your new playground is suitable for use, fun, durable and safe.
