Context

HAGS UK was instrumental in the renovation of the River Road Play Park, part of Brentwood Borough Council’s plan to improve their outdoor play areas. Inclusion is at the top of their list, as well as ensuring that the renovated play area is stimulating and challenging for all children.

Work undertaken

The play area had not been updated for several years and required a much-needed upgrade. HAGS removed all existing equipment, made it fully accessible for every user, and created a path network that will allow everyone to easily move around the play space. The play area provides a broad range of imaginative and inclusive play opportunities for children of all abilities.

Double the fun with a double-width slide

HAGS installed a custom-made UniPlay multi-play unit with a double-width slide so that children can slide down with a friend, parent or carer. Various access points, from the easy access steps to the challenging climbing net, will enable children to choose how they access the unit depending on their skills.

There is also a smaller UniMini multi-play unit for younger users to practice climbing and sliding, amongst other valuable skills.

Dynamic play for everyone

A selection of spinning equipment was installed throughout the play space, each requiring a different level of challenge. From the wheelchair-accessible Spinmee roundabout to the Rota Roka bowl-style spinner, children can choose the equipment they feel most comfortable in.

A variety of swing seats was installed to accommodate children of all ages and abilities, including a rope swing,  group swing and the inclusive Mirage swing seat.

A sensory experience

Throughout the play area, children will find equipment that will enhance their sensory play experience, from the musical play panels to the visually stimulating butterfly where children can look through and transform their surroundings.
