A natural playground has never looked so good!
Both our Newby Leisure team and the staff of Kids Planet, Sheepbridge worked alongside one another to re-vamp their play area and create a natural, fun-filled learning environment for the children!
Together, we came up with a free flowing space for outdoor play and education which features a variety of natural elements including: fallen clamber tree, barked and breakout areas and artificial grass. Artificial grass is always great for brightening up dull areas but more importantly, it creates a safer and softer environment for children to play in.
We incorporated timber play resources into the scheme which really brought the design to life. Using timber in a natural playground design guarantees longevity due to the fantastic quality of the wood. This means years and years of endless outdoor fun for the pupils of Kids Planet!
The main target we hoped to achieve in this scheme was to encourage outdoor learning, imaginative play and social interaction for the children.
