The Adventure Playground will provide a dedicated play environment for 8-14 year olds. It consists of enormous hardwood timber beams installed as large pier-like structures, complemented by a range of loose parts elements which add flexibility and extend the play possibilities.
The timber superstructures will provide an aesthetic presence as well as play value in themselves - for jumping off, balancing, climbing, chilling out, swinging off, etc. Rope and net additions will connect the structures and provide swings, rigging, climbers and social spaces.
The loose parts elements will include beams, boxes, ramps, 'donuts', and giant dishes. These will be used during staffed hours as both play objects in themselves and to enhance the flexibility built into the timber structures, by encouraging users to reconfigure the playground themselves.
