New Playground for Lislane Play Park
At Lislane Play Park we were asked to remove the existing play equipment – swing, concrete mound with slide and climbing ladder. There was a large expanse of grass that we were allowed to use for the new re-vamped play area. Our aim was to provide plenty of opportunities for play for all ages and to provide a mix of timber and steel equipment.
Some key pieces include the fun action and adventure timber trim trail, crusader rope swing, memory swing and cableway. The new volcano slide has been a hit with children – we re – imagined the tired old concrete mound and slide by wetpouring over the mound to create a fun volcano with flowing lava and added a new embankment slide.
“Lislane, Saintfield playground completed in partnership with the Rural Development Fund who match funded the council’s investment…(the play area) has made a real difference in providing enchanted facilities for the local community, children and families. Wicksteed redesigned the play area to provide a fun and imaginative space to allow children of all ages to get out outdoors and have some fun. Wicksteeds imaginative design included a zip line, rota web climber, hot shot target wall to a mini land rover. This has helped the council provide something for all ages to enjoy.”
