Wicksteed Playgrounds was pleased to design, supply and install this brand new play area as part of their ongoing Framework agreement with Newry Mourne and Down District Council. It is located in a housing development, close to a special needs school on top of a hill overlooking Newry city. The Council wanted an exciting and challenging play area, with inclusive play items. We also took into account the community consultation information provided. A nautical theme was decided upon, featuring a central wetpour island with a large bespoke multi play unit with tube slide. The other equipment was located around this island, making use of grass mat safety surfacing.There were challenges to overcome during the installation such as unexpected rock and working with the different levels on site.
"Newry Mourne and Down District Council are delighted with the newflagship play area at Loanda Crescent. It is a fun nautical themed Park for all ages and abilities. It features a wide range of exciting and challenging equip ment including dual cableways, rope swing, wheelchair accessible roundabout, springers, seesaw, trampoline, play mounds and sensory play panels and musical instruments. The centre piece is a bespoke multi play unit with tube slide. There is also a picnic zone. This play area will be fantastic for the local community and visitors alike, offering many different play opportunities and long lasting physical and mental health benefits"-Declan Crilly, Outdoor Leisure Officer
