Former Olympic Athlete – Chris Cook – opened our brand new West Park play area in Newton Aycliffe after a £40,000 investment into the brand new facility!

Great Aycliffe Town Council wanted to engage junior-aged children and young teens in dynamic activities that would increase their physical activity and fitness through play.

Steve Cooper, Works and Environment Manager from Great Aycliffe Town Council comments: “The local community selected the Proludic design above all the other competitors as the range of equipment looked new, modern and exciting to the town, and above all the underlying design is to encourage kids to actively play both in cooperation and competitively. The various challenges encourage physical development whilst still being fun.”

The new play area includes items from our thrill-seeking dynamic range – Hip Hop, Rodeoboard, Altima climbing challenge and also a Biibox multiplay unit including our Skyrail.

Former Olympic swimmer, Chris Cook, is convinced that outdoor play facilities form the basis for his sporting career – “When I think back to when I was their age, I was always out and about, in parks, on my bike, climbing stuff, the typical no-harm games that I think kids should be getting into.”

“We’ve got lots of indoor facilities, leisure centers, etc, but I believe it’s the outdoor pursuits that benefit you more health-wise.”

It’s great to see that this new play area is already being so well-used and loved by the local community and who knows? We may have a future athlete in training on the horizon!

Here are a few pictures from the opening event…
