Crossmill Avenue Play Area

September 17, 2020

The existing play area at Crossmill Avenue was in a state of disrepair and was in need of improvement. Several play companies had been invited to submit quotes and designs as part of a tender process by East Renfrewshire Council.

Wicksteed was successful with its submission which included an outdoor gym area and dedicated play zones for younger and older children.

The new play area at Crossmill Avenue features an XS Cyclone Multi-Play, perfect for older children and Cloud Multi-Play which is ideal for the younger age group. The site has been revitalised with new vibrantly coloured safety surfacing and some of Wicksteed’s best inclusive play products. The new outdoor gym has a huge variety of fitness stations to ensure a good all-round body workout.
