Challenge

Whitby Holiday Park is located a 10 minute walk from Whitby’s iconic Abbey, perched upon the cliff-top. With magnificent views across the North Sea, the park is busy throughout the season. Seeking to differentiate themselves from the many alternative holiday parks in the area, the park management decided that children’s play was a very effective way in which they could increase their appeal to family visitors.

Solution

"As a parent myself, I am well aware that if the children are happy then the parents, grandparents and carers are also happy", says Director at Normanhurst Enterprises, the management group for Whitby Holiday Park. "Having seen the work Timberplay carried out at Martin Mere, I was very interested to see what they could do for us, albeit on a smaller scale."

With a budget of £90,000 Timberplay created a play area with extensive play opportunities. The play area includes water and sand play, challenging pieces like the Octagonal Tower, and high energy elements such as the Whirlwind, and the Sailing Boat, moored at the play marina with play huts and springy stepping stones.

Outcome

"As would be expected, we already do cater extensively for family market with cinema, children’s entertainment and family friendly shows at the park clubhouse", Peter continues. "With this play area we have been able to enhance our offering significantly, with inspiring play equipment that children are unable to resist. The feedback we have had to date has been nothing short of exceptional. I am glad that we have been able to work with Timberplay to create a play area that is unique not only for our own park, but also for the industry as a whole."
