On the 29th May 2015 Proludic opened their latest play park at RAF Medmenham in Buckinghamshire. Opened by the Station Commander and celebrated by the whole community it was a wonderful occasion to celebrate the culmination of many months work to bring this new play park to its completion.

Proludic worked in partnership with RAF Medmenham from the initial consultation to ensure the community were heavily involved in deciding the type of equipment and overall design they most wanted.

The play park is located next to the ‘Hive’ coffee shop, a community facility run by volunteers to provide a focal point for families, the improvement to the play space and subsequent increase in families visiting the play park has already seen an increase in the use of this essential local facility.

The RAF base wanted a play space that was innovative and challenging for a broader age range, ensuring it provided for children of all ages and abilities. Proludic were chosen to work on the project due to their extensive experience in delivering other successful RAF sites and designed a unique transport themed play park.

The play park prior to development was poorly laid out lacking the priority children needed to play safely within the designated space. The new design addressed this to ensure age appropriate play spaces were created. The under-fives area is separated from the junior and teen elements to ensure all children are able to play within an environment that is appropriate to their own social and emotional needs.

Some great features worth highlighting in the scheme are the themed multi play units which provide excellent role play opportunities for younger children. A transport theme was featured which also continued through to the surfacing. Located between Marlow and Henley we embraced the Genius loci including images of the river and local transportation so children can play and use their imagination outside of the stimulation provided by the fixed play equipment structures.

The whole park took ten months to complete from the initial consultation to the opening which marks a great achievement from all parties involved.

“Working with Proludic throughout the entire Medmenham playpark project has been quite simply a delight. Overall, a superb effort by an outstanding team, on budget, on time - Thank you!” Squadron Leader Craig Kirk, RAF Medmenham
