Site: Futures Way, Wallyford, EH21 EFF

Budget: £111,000

Age Range: Junior & Teenagers play equipment

Date Opened: 1-May-2022

A new play area has opened in Wallyford in East Lothian near the new local primary school and has already proved to be a very popular attraction with local children. The project is the result of a collaboration between Proludic who designed and supplied the play equipment and East Lothian Council as installers.

The play area has a wide range of playground equipment designed for use by pre-school children through to teenagers. The final design was chosen by the pupils of Wallyford Primary School following a consultation. From a previously underutilised piece of land, the new play space boasts eleven new items of play equipment that can accommodate more than one hundred children at any one time. Additionally, it offers one hundred and fifty play values for children to interact with. The client brief was for the space to include inclusive play equipment and nine pieces of equipment were included specifically for physical, cognitive and sensory impairments.

We have dealt with Proludic for many years, probably 20 years. We have had very positive feedback for this new play park, and we are quite happy that Proludic supplied this particular job.

At this destination park, the central tree house is a large beacon that entices children and gives them a sense of discovery. Proludic was able to include some new innovative products for the first time in Scotland, like the new Ka’Yop climbing unit and the cantilever swing, which add to the sense of wonder in this play space.

The new play park is the latest to be installed by East Lothian Council and works continue to upgrade and improve other play areas around the county. The Council currently provides, manages and maintains one hundred and twenty equipped play areas throughout East Lothian to encourage healthy sociable play for young people.
