Urban themed playground in Bromsgrove

Bromsgrove urban themed Recreation Ground

Bromsgrove District Council wanted to create an urban themed playground for toddlers and juniors, up to 12 years old, as part of the wider Recreation Road redevelopment scheme that also includes a care village, a small cinema and café

The new playground needed to reflect the local and important history of the nearby Old Drill Hall which was built in 1914.

The new playground installed by Sutcliffe Play South West features a range of innovative equipment to offer children exciting and challenging play solutions including toddler and junior units, swings and a seesaw.

All of the equipment installed was either galvanised or stainless steel to generate an urban themed playground.

The arched entrance gate, benches and bins are all themed on the Old Drill Hall as a tribute to the history of the area.

Play Equipment

Curlicue
Using the inspiration of nature, the Curlicue takes the form of a simple spiral. Set at an angle, this spinner uses the changing centre of gravity of the user to propel them around. Whether sitting inside the spiral or gazing at the optical effect created by a revolving spiral.

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 its height make side transfer possible and minimise the lifting required by helpers.

Talk Tubes

Position these at either end of the play area and children will even be able to hear each other whispering. With a maximum distance of 20m apart, the underground tube is flexible so it can go round corners.

Swings

Produced for over 20 years, our swings are a popular item of play equipment that are built to last. Requiring installation, they are very robust as they are manufactured using hot dipped galvanised steel. They are available in different heights and with various swing combinations.
