Cutsyke Play Forest

The Castleford Project was a major regeneration initiative between Channel 4, Wakefield Metropolitan District Council and supporting agencies. From extensive consultation with the Cutsyke Community, designs were chosen to transform derelict council allotments in a mining town, that had become a dumping ground, into a 400 mt sq, showcase play forest using our outdoor play equipment.

We created a play forest comprising of overlapping grids of 6m and 3m high poles using nets and equipment  located between them, this created a unique 3-d environment with ‘no way in, no way out and no prescribed routes to follow’.

It also has 2 very large tunnel slides and a unique 4m high platform. Another unique feature of the forest is the poles that are topped with solar powered LED lights, transforming it into a beacon at night.

Wisbech Adventure Playground

Cambridgeshire County Council wanted to allow children the ability to build and change the environment around them as an integral part of play. They wanted children to be able to adapt and change structures, evolving aspects to reflect their patterns of play.

We created a new system that kept the principles of self build at the heart of its design – bespoke; transforms over time; can be built and rebuilt by children (not play workers) and it is flexible to meet the needs of children, the space and the environment.  The end result was a bespoke creation, led by children and facilitated by play workers.
