Our Solution

Park Leisure’s design has a central science and mathematical theme with bespoke equipment created specifically for the project. The equipment actively targets the 8-13 year olds with an emphasis on challenging climbing structures. The use of a variety of safety surfacing including play bark and gravel and a sympathetic design has created a synergy between the new equipment and the existing natural elements of the park.

Greensmill play area is named after the 19th Century mathematician and physicist George Green and this unique history was a key factor in the concept design.
