Bridge Community Centre Playground

Newry, Mourne & Down Council – Bridge Community Centre

The old play area at The Bridge Community Centre, Killyleagh has seen a huge overhaul of its play facility as part of a development project for Newry, Mourne and Down Council. We replaced the existing items at the site with exciting new multi-play units including a bespoke Gaheris Castle and a castle themed Tom Thumb Toddler unit. We also increased the play value of the space with some of our favourite dynamic products including the Rock ‘n’ Bowl Roundabout and Mini-Basket Swing.

Customer Comment

“We were delighted to be working with Wicksteed to deliver the Newry Mourne and Down Council play strategy,  it has been a pleasure from the moment we engaged in the designing, constructing and delivering of these projects. We would like to thank Wicksteed staff who took the brief and delivered a fantastic park at The Bridge Centre  that the Council are proud to have in their area. It will be a real asset, that local families and visitors to the Killyleagh area will enjoy for years to come. There is a plethora of play opportunities for all ages and abilities, including some exciting electronic play and a wealth of fun themed equipment such as Castles and Boats. “
