Exciting new play zones at Coronation Park

Sedgemoor District Council wanted to create a destination park for Bridgwater, creating a flagship playground for the town. The existing park was a large flat open space, popular among dog walkers, with two small fenced play areas. Sutcliffe Play South West was awarded the contract to replace the existing dilapidated playground with an exciting range of new play zones. This included an enclosed area for toddlers, an open plan area for juniors and teenagers, and a robust outdoor gym for the community.

Sutcliffe Play designed a play area which incorporated 25 individual items of play equipment, in addition to resurfacing and fencing. As Coronation Park is a popular destination for dog walking, a Bark Park was also created which provides an opportunity for owners to work with their dogs on agility and obedience. The equipment, which is designed to reduce anti-social behaviour from dogs by providing a stimulating and exciting environment, includes dog tunnels, jumps and weave posts.

For younger children, an enclosed play area was created using a variety of equipment from the Sutcliffe Play Toddlerzone range, which provides a wide range of play opportunities designed specifically to develop key skills, including physical challenges such as climbing, balancing and coordination. A springie bike and inclusive springie ladybird were incorporated into the design, alongside a 1m dish roundabout, seesaw and hill slide to create further exciting play opportunities. Designed for older toddlers, to younger juniors, Toddlerzone ‘Sneak & Peak’ was also installed, offering more challenging play.

For older juniors, the Mission Phantom unit was included in the design of the open play area with varying degrees of challenge, resting surfaces, slides and glides.  The play area also includes a large trampoline, double width hill slide and an exhilarating 25m cableway to encourage high energy invigorating play whilst keeping fit and active.

“Sedgemoor District Council chose to work with Sutcliffe Play following a successful tender exercise was completed. Sedgemoor District Council’s Parks team have found Sutcliffe Play to be willing to go the extra mile to achieve the excellent facilities the local community are now enjoying.”

Scott Mason, Parks and Open Spaces Project Officer, Sedgemoor District Council.

1m Dish Roundabout

One of our most inclusive products, our rotating dish roundabout can be used for very fast dynamic play. The rocking and rotating motion with good body support and security given by the dish shape, make our dishes accessible to all. The angle of the dish and it’s height make side transfer possible and minimise the lifting required by helpers.

Sports Area

3.9m High Goal Ends

Where room and budgets are limited, but a ball game area is required, these stand-alone football and basketball goal ends work well. The range is modular and flexible, so should you wish to alter the height of either the rebound barriers or the basketball hoop, it is possible to do so.
