Gallagher Estates and the Bedford Design Group wanted a LEAP (Local Equipped Area for Play) designing for a new town development in Bedford called Wixams. They wanted the site to be aimed at children aged 4-12 years but also be considerate to other age groups and abilities.

The site needed to allow free and creative play with some seating options for parents and guardians. Proludic worked with Gallaghers and Bedford Design Group to create a flagship park for the area. The use of boulders and sand ensure a successful combination of textures, colour and landscaping which is sympathetic to its setting.

This has successfully enhanced the infrastructure and environment of the newly formed housing estate, encouraging physical activity and interaction within the new community.

The park has been a great success and fits in beautifully with the surrounding environment
