Cwmgwrach Welfare Park Playground

July 24, 2019

Wicksteed Playgrounds are one of the few playground company’s able to offer completely bespoke, tailor made play solutions to their customers thanks to their state of the art production facilities.

A bespoke themed playground

The Northants based play and leisure designer and manufacturer was delighted to see the opening of a new bespoke mining themed play area and multi-use sports facility at Cwmgwrach Welfare Park for Blaengwrach Community Council.

Mining is of huge cultural significance to the people of Cymgwrach. Based on a list of customer requirements Wicksteed ensured that a fun mining theme was featured throughout the space and that the site was as inclusive as possible. The theme was created with a mix of bespoke play products and imaginative ground graphics.

The project began in 2018 and evolved with several design changes explored with the customer. Consultations were held with local schools and this also had a great influence on the final design. Along with the bespoke play area, Wicksteed also completely renovated the existing sports facility.
