Playground Design 
Playground design is not just a matter of placing a number of items into an area, creating a fence and declaring it a playground. Consideration must be given to many other areas including play value, age appropriateness, design and budget. 

As specialists in this area, we can manage the overall design process which considers the playground site in relationship to the landscape, site restraints, amenity needs, landscaping works, shade, furniture, access and considers the requirements of the community.

We work with a wide variety of playground manufacturer’s using both proprietary equipment and custom built to design a playground with optimum play value that compliments site design. 

Designing for inclusiveness is fast becoming one of the most important aspects of intelligent playspace and open space design. 

To ensure your compliance with both regulatory and stakeholder requirements in designing for access and mobility, please contact us.
