Overview

The old children’s play area at Crowmarsh, Oxon was in real need of an upgrade. The existing recreation ground was over 20 years old and in need of removal, modernisation and even replacement. After a community survey in the spring of 2017, overwhelming support was given to develop a brand new playspace. And so the funding began.

Two years later, and with generous support from the likes of SODC, WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund and ACTIVE SPACES (The London Marathon Charitable Trust and Fields Trust), the £191,000 project, Crowmarsh Gifford Play Area, eventually came to fruition in early April 2019.

Challenge

Councillor David Rowley contacted eibe Play after seeing their installation at Abbey Meadows. Hoping to retain some identity and history, he asked eibe to come up with some design ideas, wishing to keep a few existing features present, whilst undertaking a complete overhaul of the site, installing a host of new, engaging equipment.

Throughout 2018, the plan developed and it was decided that Crowmarsh would keep the planted arches and the train, as they were popular with locals, but the specification of new units began in earnest.

Work undertaken

With the need to entertain children of all ages a design imperative, eibe created a playspace that would encompass all the joy of outdoor play. Two main units, the Extron and the Dom, are surrounded by the likes of a 6m climbing net, a Saturn Whizzer Carousel, a 6-bay swing, unique double aerial cableway, trampoline and seesaw.

There is also a separate gym area for family members to burn off some calories too.

Outcome

All in all, as witnessed by the happy, smiley faces last weekend, the kids of Crowmarsh will be regally entertained for many years to come.
