Gratton Park Community Play Area – Hampshire

After public consultations and a string of fundraising events, the residents of Sutton Scotney were looking to extensively revamp the village playground. Some of the old equipment was removed because it was potentially too unsafe to use.

After careful consultation Caledonia Play produced a proposal which would provide a wide range of play equipment for children of all ages and abilities.

A proposal drawing was created outlining the best places to situate all the pieces of play equipment taking into account the flow of play and the required safety areas around each product.

The new pieces of equipment were placed alongside the existing products which were still able to be used.

The installation included the following products.

Basket Swing

Flying Fox/Aerial Ropeway System

Log Train

Large Timber Boat

Roundabout

Timber Seesaw
