All Play, our distributor over in Ireland, was tasked with helping supply equipment to refurb an existing play space in Belfast earlier this year. The aim was to bring the local community together and create an all- inclusive playground for children and adults to enjoy.
Working with Belfast City Council, they advised on which inclusive multi-play unit would be best suited in a new playground at the once popular site, Ormeau Park. The project formed part of the vision to upgrade the space which was no longer compliant and had become non-economical to keep repairing.
Ormeau Park is now home to one of the biggest, brightest piece of inclusive play equipment available, the Voyage Unit, which can accommodate up to 45 users at one time. The mammoth multi-level structure sits proudly at the centre of the playground, with inclusive play stations and a specially designed ramp to allow access for wheelchair users.
Along with its colourful exterior, the unit boasts multiple sensory elements and slides, including a scramble and slide ramp – a unique feature intended for users with reduced mobility to move up and down the ramp with the use of ropes for aids.
Popular swings and play panels make up the rest of the refurbishment, adding choice and variety for multiple age groups.
Catherine Weir from Belfast City Council said; “The site at Ormeau Park has always been a popular destination with families until the old equipment became worn and in need of repair. It’s great to see life back in the updated playground. The equipment from Sutcliffe Play exceeds our expectations! We’re sure the new playground will be loved for many years to come.”
