Challenge

As the only public play park facility in the North West of the town, the previous play area at Polson Park was out of date, tired and offered limited play value. But through partnership work with the council and The Hub, connected to Sanderson Wynd Primary School which teaches children with Special Education Needs, provided a comprehensive overview of the requirements needed to ensure the park was inclusive.

Solution

From high action playtime to a gentler pace of play, the final design created by Jupiter Play is truly inclusive. It caters to children who need complex climbing structures to work of energy to those who need to explore coordination, movement and control through the use of smaller sensory items such as the musical orb. All these opportunities coexist in the same park to allow children of any ability or need to play together.

The Wheelspin and Orbs were used as highlight items to provide both dynamic and sensory fun to the area, immediately opening up the play opportunities to more children. The space isn’t defined by user ability but is accented with intriguing products that are well loved and hasn’t cost the client the earth.
