About This Project
The natural play space initiative will provide interactive play facilities for infants and babies. The play areas are designed, constructed and planted in a way to encourage all the senses and introduce physical challenges in play. The key feature at many centres will be an interactive pump style water feature flowing through the play area into a cobbled river bed. The schemes combine a variety of surfacing including resin bonded, bound with decorative inserts, decorative paving, mosaics, play bark, sand and grass. Images of a number of recently completed schemes are illustrated below.

The projects are carried out at fully operational centres.
