Cusworth Hall, Park and Gardens is a popular visitor destination in Doncaster, with a stunning landscaped park and country house. The gardens already had an existing and well-used junior play area in-situ, however, feedback gained from park users was that there was currently nothing for younger or less able children to play on. There was a preference for timber equipment to fit in with the surroundings and a toddler facility that would contrast the existing equipment and cater to this age group.
In addition to standard play activities to be included in the design, the client asked for any additional features to be included by Proludic, that could maximise the usage of the equipment. Overall, they wanted the new installation to reach a wider range of users, as well as encourage and promote continued participation. With this in mind, we created an inclusive toddler play area using the Tiboo range. This included a Pod Swing, Baby & Junior Swings and tactile play panels that encourage children to think about the immediate natural environment.
Thank you for delivering a great little scheme for us which I am absolutely over the moon with and one which has been warmly welcomed by all our park users. There has been over 100 comments and over 90 shares on our Facebook page announcing the opening of the toddler area.David Shore – Assistant Head Gardener
