A new lease of life for Green End Play Area

April 11, 2019

Wicksteed Playgrounds have breathed new life into an old, well loved play area! The old play area at Green End in Long Itchington was in a state of disrepair.  A number of pieces of equipment had to be replaced but Wicksteed was able to give a new lease of life to the original Wicksteed Train with a vibrant new colour scheme.  Green rubber mulch safety surfacing was used to replace the old worn out tiles giving the play area a lift and a more natural feel.  Play value of the site was increased dramatically with a new trampoline and mini basket swing as well a more traditional see-saw, turnstile roundabout and 2x springies.

Customer Comment

Thank you for a great job on both our play areas. The design for both worked very well – Green End in particular was excellent!  It was a pleasure to work with the team at Wicksteed! Richard Jackson, Parish Councillor
