Wicksteed – Bespoke play at its very best

A fantastically innovative and creative design team with a market-leading, long established play and sports company that manufactures high quality equipment results is the perfect formula when it comes to designing products and schemes for play and fitness areas – particularly bespoke products.

From the Scottish Borders to the shores of Sussex, Wicksteed’s exceptional flair and inspirational use of their bespoke capabilities are evident across the whole of the UK. The dynamic designers can create bespoke themes for an entire play area or simply design and manufacture themed panels, signage or standalone units to add a personalised identity and individualism to a site.

Dragon Rockscape  Shark Rockscape  Space Shuttle Rockscape

In Cambridge, a dramatic Dragon spits daring children out of the slide one end whilst at the other end its long backbone creates a series of intricate twisted logs and colourful steel stepping posts to clamber over.  Down by the sea in Shoreham, a 2.5m tall, spine-chillingly realistic Shark entices plucky climbers to daringly edge up towards its jaws. Whilst Basildon’s Victoria Park in Essex boasts a specially designed Space Shuttle Rockscape Climber which takes centre stage among revamped heritage Wicksteed pieces. Much further north, work is currently underway in Scotland where a huge new play area is being installed with a totally bespoke, double-fronted Castle at its heart, featuring a wide range of climbing opportunities.

Multi-faceted Dragon Slide and Climber, scary Shark Rockscape, high-climbing Space Shuttle, towering, tactile double-fronted Castle…? What next from Wicksteed Playgrounds..?  Just watch this space!
