Sensory and Active Play Space
We were challenged with creating an exciting play area to make the most of the sloped grass to one side of the school building.
Our design incorporates imaginative and active play, within a sensory and natural setting. We selected log rounds to form terraced pods surrounding the play areas to provide informal seating. Each of the three pods has a different colour Resin Bound Rubber Bark surface and contains a different play item.
The Beacon Tower stands tall in the top pod forming a playful focal point with several climbing opportunities including a fast slide and a lookout tower. To one side the Play Hut provides a place for social interaction between small groups of children while encouraging imaginative play. The bottom two pods contain sand and water play with the large Covered Sandpit and Niagara Water Tray giving children the chance to explore different materials while stimulating the senses.
