The unusual name for this area of Burgess Hill dates back to a nickname given by the imported engineers or ‘Navvies’ who built the railway that snaked its way to Brighton. We have therefore given a nod to this past in both our design and the completed play area. Following extensive discussions, Mid Sussex District Council launched a tender process – which had inclusivity at the heart of the brief. Designs were shared with the local community to ensure their needs would be considered, where it was agreed that the play area should challenge both the able-bodied and serve the needs of disabled children.
Following the resulting tender process, Proludic was chosen as the contractor for the new site. The play area showcases our 7m high Kanope Tower and includes other unique features such as an inclusive multi-play unit, which has numerous tactile elements and ramp access. The site also includes an inclusive swing, roundabout and sensory play items.
Proludic was chosen following a competitive tender process and the community of Worlds End has a park that is bespoke, inclusive, challenging and has a link to the history of the area.Ian Hamilton, Proludic Area Manager
