When South Tyneside Council was looking to upgrade a popular park in the coastal town of South Shields, Proludic was successful in their bid to create a new play and fitness space using our play equipment to honour the Roman history of the area for the whole community and tourists to enjoy.

Proludic's design for the play area focused on this rich history dating back to Roman times when the port and fort acted as a supply base for garrisons on Hadrian’s Wall and beyond. This connection to the local maritime history allowed Proludic to put forward a colourful inspirational design. These include the use of themed product ranges and their Grafic Games technique. Grafic Games brings a theme to life by printing designed illustrations onto the panels of the equipment.

Proludic were also pleased to include bespoke elements such as the Roman shipwrecked galley multi-play unit as the centrepiece. The Arbeia hilltop fort and local ancient landmarks such as The Bridge of Hadrian were also replicated along the way down the winding Tyne River in the wet pour surfacing.
