BRIEF Wanting to transform their existing EYFS tarmac play area, Willow Green Academy got in touch with Creative Play. During their consultation it became apparent that they wanted to include a mixture of play surfaces as well as incorporate a main climbing tower, sensory items and imaginative play equipment. Being such a large development, we were excited to get started!
DESIGN With so many wants we really wanted to make sure we met, and exceeded, all of Willow Green’s expectations. Firstly, we included classic sensory play items such as our Water Wall – EYFS and new Messy Play Tables whilst for the main climbing tower we created a custom Jigsaw Tower with a slide, V-Bridge and Net Climber. Den-Making Teepees & Weaving Beams were added to spark imaginations and our Half Octavia Shelter creates a great outdoor classroom.
We also added a Timber Combi Goal with two Timber Kickboards to create a great sports zone. Throughout the development we used a variety of coloured Wetpour Safety Surfacing to create different play zones whilst ensuring all BSEN 1176 & 1177 safety requirements were met. For the sports area, Artificial Grass Safety Surfacing was used to mimic a football pitch.
INSTALLATION With such a large amount of play equipment and variety of safety surfacing involved in Willow Green Academy’s development, it was essential that all involved worked well together to ensure a successful outcome.
Overall the final result looks very impressive and is a fantastic facility for the school.
Well done to all involved!
