Torbant Caravan Park reached out to Creative Play after previously having our equipment installed and being very impressed. The park was now looking to create a brand new play area to serve as a focal point on a new section at the site. After initial consultation, they were looking for a variety of equipment including a central Tower System, Trim Trail, Swings and loved the idea of colourful Wetpour surfacing with inlaid splashes. We were tasked with providing an exciting and engaging new play area which would dramatically improve the park’s facilities.
Time was a key factor in this development as Torbant Caravan Park was on a strict deadline to have the project finished as soon as possible. After hearing the ideas Torbant Caravan Park had for the development we came up with a detailed design proposal based on the requirements specified. Our proposal was presented to the customer and a final design was agreed. Torbant Caravan Park had chosen various items of Trim Trail including our Swinging Log, Rope Bridge and Stilts. Our Sherwood Tower System was also incorporated to make a perfect focal point to the new playground! The Sherwood has a huge variety of play features to promote active, social and creative play over multiple levels, keeping children busy for hours! Play panels were also chosen including Noughts and Crosses and a Motor play panel for imaginative play. In addition to the above, we installed our popular Basket Swing with swing barriers. All the equipment chosen makes for a playground suitable for multiple age ranges and guaranteed to provide fun for all. To ensure the play area met the BSEN 1177 requirements, we recommended Wetpour safety surfacing to be laid under the equipment, allowing all weather use. This was an opportunity for us to make a real feature of the playground, laying Blue Wetpour with brightly coloured splashes around different pieces of equipment to highlight routes of play and create separate zones.
The grounds at Torbant Caravan Park offered a large grassed area to create the new playground. Our sales and design team worked closely with the customer to produce an innovative, practical and exciting playground proposal, consisting of new equipment as well as an intricate surfacing design.
All the teams involved in this project worked extremely hard to ensure a smooth installation that provided minimal disruption to the everyday running of the Caravan Park. The end result was fantastic. The colours of the equipment and the surfacing complimented the area perfectly, definitely delivering the ‘wow factor’ they were looking for! We are very proud to have been part of this project.
Further to the completion of our play area at Torbant Caravan Park in Pembrokeshire, we wish to offer some feedback on our experience with your company.
From start to finish the process has been handled efficiently. Tim Broster was enthusiastic and we were impressed at his knowledge of the products despite him only being with the company for a short period of time. We were constantly kept in the loop by the relevant people on what was happening. This meant a lot to us as we do not live on the caravan park. The install teams worked tidily and soldiered on despite the awful weather conditions they encountered. Martin Kennedy was efficient and always answered any queries we had.
There is just one point we would like to mention, the day that we signed off with Martin the weather was horrendous and although Martin did his best to show us everything, we couldn’t look at everything 100%. We pointed out to Martin that the roof on the Sherwood tower which is made up of two separate pieces of wood did not line up 100%, we decided with Martin to see how it goes the next few months and if it still isn’t to our satisfaction we will be in touch.
It is rare for us nowadays to have a project run so smoothly, we will definitely recommend Creative Play to our family and friends who also own caravan parks.
