Proludic recently celebrated their 15 year birthday as a leading play and sports manufacturer within the UK. We have demonstrated over the last 15 years our ability to install some amazing play areas.
This summer we are proud that the three sites we have installed are having a special birthday too.
Sowerby Parish Council play area, landscape-led French Weir in Taunton Deane and the destination park Withy Grove all have been in the ground for 10 successful years.
Sowerby Parish Council wanted to create a play area full of modern, innovative and exciting play opportunities. The existing toddler area was to remain, with new equipment provided for the Junior and Teenage groups. Proludic added their iconic multi-play range Ixo which still today looks as modern as when it first burst onto the scene. A tall bank slide was also added
French Weir was designed by Landscape Architect firm Swan Paul and we worked in partnership with them to deliver it. The end result is a great site that uses a range of natural surfaces and materials to create a fun and dynamic area for children.
Withy Grove is a landmark site – when it was installed in 2007, it was the first site in the UK to be worth over £500,000. A real destination park that is still as popular today as when it was first installed. It has everything! Sand, inclusivity, sensory play, dynamic play, toddler through to teen play and a huge volcano tower in the middle as a focal point.
Happy Birthday to all of these individual and wonderful sites. Each of them has endured and looks as magnificent today as they did back in 2007. Congratulations to everyone involved!
