Our Solution

Living willow tunnels, green oak benches, custom shaped planters and a custom built bamboo sun shelter all give the playground a natural feel,  whilst a newly created road track with thermoplastic ground crossings helps the children practise their road skills.

Park Leisure held a Willow Workshop with the children of Harlow Fields School during the latter stages of the installation involving them in building the large tunnel features that will grow and  become established in their playground.

The selected play equipment encourages interaction amongst children of all abilities, enabling them to play together in the playground and share their play experiences. At Park Leisure we design our play spaces to be accessible, interesting and challenging to as many users as possible.


Play Equipment for an inclusive School

Project Background

Harlow Fields School is an all age (3 - 19), special school in Essex catering for up to 120 learners. In association with Anne Thorne Architects, Park Leisure helped the school to design and create a new playground for the children with a vast range of play equipment including inclusive swings with a specialist seat and inclusive basket, a slide, musical instruments, interactive panels and the Kidabout roundabout.
