Work starts in Morecambe

Work is well underway on the new Wave Wall Play Area in Morecambe.  The playground has been given a maritime theme to complement its location on the seafront and adjacency to Morecambe’s sailing club.

The play area is part of a six year, £10 million project to protect Morecambe from coastal flooding.

We’re working on the playground with the project’s contractor VBA, which is a joint venture comprising of VolkerStevin, Boskalis Westminster and Atkins.

Kevin Sellwood at Sutcliffe Play says: “There’s limited space on the site with a maximum width of 10 metres so we’ve had to be really clever with the design.

“We’re creating a unique destination playground that will offer endless play opportunities for children aged 2-10 years old that includes a range of themed play equipment to inspire children’s play.”

Two main play units are being installed:

  • The 6 metre Teenzone ‘Lighthouse’ features a covered tunnel slide, rope climb, climbing wall and seating areas to encourage social and active play.
  • The ‘Morecambe Scooner’ is a galleon inspired unit featuring a range of sailing activities and includes a full set of sails and a bow with anchor detail.  Access points include a rope climb, cargo net, pull up ramp and steps whilst quick exits can be made via two slides and a fireman’s pole.  The theme continues ‘below deck’ with cannons and cabin doors encouraging imaginative play.

These are complemented with a swing unit, Seaside Oyster Roundabout, Pablo the Penguin Seesaw and a Rock Spinner.
