Let us create the perfect play area for your organisation. 

We work with the following sectors:

Local Authorities

Architects and Housing Developers

Caravan Industry and Park Operators

Community Groups

Tourist Destinations

Towns, Parishes and Community Councils

Leisure Industry

 


Although our wooden play equipment for the garden is robust, heavy and well constructed – it is not suitable for commercial use.  Products for the commercial sector need to be to a higher specification due to the fact that, in theory, they will be used more. This is why we have a range of products especially developed for public play areas.


Are you looking for something unique and made to order?

We work closely with visitor attractions, parish councils and community organisations to create wonderful and unique play areas that you will not see anywhere else.

Our design team can create visual mock-ups of your play area and draw detailed plans to ensure that the products you have chosen will fit into the available space, and also comply with all the required safety regulations.

We make most of the products ourselves from small planters to large activity towers with 6 towers.

We installed a new outdoor play and activity area for Polwhele House School, a beautiful and historic manor house set in a 30 acre site on the outskirts of Truro.

They were looking for beautiful timber play equipment that would not only challenge the children physically on all levels, would also fit beautifully into the stunning natural setting and would last for many years to come.

We installed an Octagonal Tower with a variety of access and exit points.

Also a 30m Flying Fox Zip Wire extending from a large tree across
existing grassland.

The School was delighted with the play equipment and more domestic orders have been coming though as a result of people seeing the quality of our build.

Another project is a lovely new play area we created at a new housing development in Scone, Perthshire. Part of the installation is an attractive timber Hexagonal Play Tower which forms the centerpiece of the play park.

The tower platform is supported by 14cm diameter machine rounded timbers which are fitted with galvanized metal extended feet, so reducing any timber having direct contact with ground moisture. The main deck platform is constructed with machine rounded timber fixed to the main legs and supports redwood decking. The deck platform has a selection of access and exit points offering a variety of activities such as climbing ramp, scramble net and rock wall.

The contractors A & J Stephen (Builders) Ltd worked with us to create this unique Scone play area that was not only attractive but also one that would last for many years to come.

More information on the Hexagonal Activity Tower can by found here.


See us at a show again this year!

We normally attend shows all over the country. We particularly enjoy meeting people and getting the opportunity to chat in person rather than over the phone or via email.

The shows also give us the opportunity to exhibit a range of our products and for potential customers to try them out and see for themselves how robust and beautiful our play equipment really is.

Take a look at our shows page to see which shows we will be attending.

For large projects that require a bespoke design and build service we will do a site visit and create a series of drawings to illustrate what your play area will look like. We then have our own installation team who will install the products at a time to suit.

If you would like to arrange a site visit to discuss the outdoor play provision (or indoor area!) then please get contact us on 01577 840570 or email sales@caledoniaplay.com

We also supply play equipment to schools and nurseries and for homes and gardens.


Although we prefer working with timber, we understand that, on occasion, metal products are more suited to the brief and therefore also supply a range of metal playpark equipment which is as vandal-proof as possible ensuring the best solution for the situation.

If you would like a member of our sales team to come out and do a site visit and to discuss our Range of Commercial Play Equipment please contact sales@caledoniaplay.com.

Take a look at our online brochure for schools and commercial organisations.

We are delighted to have been be involved with the Scotland’s Finest Woods Awards again this year…. more information here. The Award is to encourage and reward schools that increase young people’s understanding and appreciation of the environmental, social and economic potential of trees, woodlands and forests and of the link between trees and everyday wood-based products.


Our play equipment installed at Ayrshire Hospital by the wonderful Glasgow Warriors!


The Glasgow Warriors took some time out of their busy schedule to help with the build of a brand new sensory garden for children at an Ayrshire Central Hospital.
Backed by Crosshouse Children’s Fund, the sensory garden at Rainbow House in Irvine has been brought to life by equipment donated by Glasgow Warriors’ sponsor, Mackenzie Construction.
The generous donation covered the purchase and installation of all of the play equipment and garden furniture needed – including a log train, seating area, basket swing and plants.

We worked carefully along with Mackenzie Construction to come up with a set of solutions of play areas that would be the best and most appropriate for the outdoor space.
