What was previously an open space and football field at King George’s Playing Field in Norton-on-Derwent, Yorkshire has been enhanced by Sutcliffe Play with the addition of an inclusive children’s play area, ball court and more outdoor fitness equipment.
The Bodys outdoor gym equipment is hard-wearing, easy to use, and can be used by young and old to maintain fitness and flexibility.
The Romper is designed to strengthen the muscles in the legs and abdomen, while the Cross Country Skier and Rider focus on the muscles in the legs, arms and torso and improve motor co-ordination. The Bike is ideal for strengthening the lower limbs and helping to improve circulation, replicating the functionality of a traditional gym bike.
A bike springie and seesaw, and inclusive pieces including a roundabout were installed in the children's area.
The Scooter inclusive roundabout offers functionality and durability without compromise. The bearing mechanism means the roundabout is free-running for up to two minutes, giving children and carers the opportunity to enjoy the fun. Bump stops on both sides of the base enable users to apply wheelchair brakes.
“We are a bit limited on space but wanted to find a way of improving the play provision within the confines of the existing boundaries at King George Playing Field. Sutcliffe Play came up with an inventive scheme which incorporated a wheelchair accessible roundabout and see saw, as well as a wave rider, a child’s sit on bike, and two new pieces of gym fitness equipment to the side of the field.
We have been very impressed with Sutcliffe Play throughout the project. Kevin has handled our case superbly, always available as the first point of contact. We are very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Sutcliffe Play."
