Water Play Stream for Schools

Natural Playground Design - Lilycroft Nursery School, Bradford

Natural play is now at the epicenter of Lilycroft’s playtime!

With aspects of water play and physical activity, the project offered a natural design to give this schools outdoor area a complete lift.

To do this, we included a path of interest, made up of multiple surface options to create a unique design and pattern. This is a great way for children to explore different textures!

Each material used is hard-wearing and durable, perfect for areas that are intensively used at play time. Along the pathway, we included a timber bridge. This will be great for wheeling your bikes, trikes, and scooters over!

Natural Physical & Water Play

Offering schools and nurseries the chance to be creative with their outdoor play areas is something that Newby Leisure will always encourage.

Natural play spaces offer a different dynamic to your playground, and with that, we decided to generate a rustic, timber tower to encourage physical activity. This clamber tower is located on a bed of certified tree bark, with a sleeper edging to surround.

Children will remain entertained for hours as they climb, slide, and play on this bespoke structure!

In other areas, we added further physical apparatus to boost health and fitness on the playground.

P.E. lessons will be so much fun!

To top off this natural playground design, working with the teachers, we decided to include a water play stream and bespoke sand pit.

By using natural items to create streams, beaches, sandpits, and bridges, your outdoor play area will have so much more to offer than a tarmacked design with simple markings would.
