Context

Established in 1921, Wicksteed Park was the first dedicated children’s play park in the UK, created with equipment specifically for children set in the 147 acre country park. The park is added to year on year and there was a desire to incorporate sand and water play.

Products supplied

All the delights of beach play have been encapsulated into the new designs for the landlocked park. An extensive sand play area includes cranes, chutes, tippers, platforms and cranes, perfect for transportation play. It is also the site of the first AQuadrat in the UK, a flexible modular waterplay system made from solid oak timber, with mushroom pump and metal gutters.

Alongside the extensive sand play area, AQuadrat and waterplay there is also a number of pieces created for toddlers, for example the Platform Houses and Peter Horse Cart and Swinging Horse, all grouped in a Play Village.

Wicksteed attracts 350,000 visitors per year and is free to enter. There are a number of paid for attractions, but the water and sand play is free for all park users.
