All equipment is manufactured to current BSEN standards.

A truly bespoke play feature…

As well as a standard product range of playground favourites, the majority of installations are specifically designed for a project by taking ideas and inspiration to create a truly bespoke play feature.

For young children play is a necessity, for older children a desire, for adults a welcome memory.

Many projects start with a pictorial representation of the structural concept created from the design brief which is driven by the intended use of the installation and play requirements.

With a wide range of materials available there are few boundaries to creating exciting, challenging installations which will occupy children for hours.

The mixed use of timber, steel, and netting within our structures is becoming more prevalent, all structures comply to current standards.

Barrier-free play…

Ensuring play structures are accessible to all irrespective of ability and providing meaningful, safe spaces where a combination of physical, educational and sensory play features create a child’s imaginative wonderland.



Titchfield Park


Client: Ashfield District Council
Budget: £135,000

The Brief
Our client wanted to provide new play equipment for children of all ages to complement existing equipment, this would extend the popular playground adjacent to the café in Titchfield Park. The design was required to provide progression from younger toddlers through to juniors by challenging them
both physically and mentally.

Design Proposal
To maximise the potential of the space, we suggested moving existing picnic benches to improve visual contact for parents of young children and to act as an informal barrier between the toddler equipment and nearby car park. It was also proposed that existing equipment was to be refurbished to ensure a coherent aesthetic.

Further consideration was also given to improve accessibility / inclusivity across the whole site, enabling all children whatever their ability to gain meaningful play experiences within the play area. This included a new path for easy access into the sand play area, which allowed access to sand tables and a pully system that can be used from a seated position. An inclusive roundabout, to be installed flush to the ground on wetpour, an inclusive swing seat and an inclusive springie were also included in the design near to existing tarmac paths to further aid accessibility.

The final play area offers an engaging play experience designed to provide educational and imaginative games for toddlers, as well as a range of exhilarating and physically challenging obstacles for older children.

Located close to the café, the toddler area focuses on developing young children’s strength, balance and co-ordination while encouraging social interaction and imaginative play opportunities. Further afield, more challenging equipment is positioned adjacent to the new sand pit to appeal to older children seeking adventure and risk.

A trim trail forms a playful link between the play area and the new sand pit. The 157m2 sand pit is the focal point of the new-look play area and offers ample space for buckets and spades alongside sand and water play equipment, allowing children to be creative and experiment with natural elements.

What our client said

“Sutcliffe Play designed and delivered a cohesive play area with a host of new and exciting equipment for children of all ages and abilities, extending our existing space next to the café. The sand pit at the centre of the new play area has already become a firm favourite with local children and is a great addition that encourages children to work together and make new friends.”
