Shincliffe Play Area Durham
Brambledown Landscape Services Ltd have completed the full construction of a new play area in Shincliffe Village Durham, on behalf of Shincliffe Parish Council.
The Play Area, which will have its official opening on Saturday the 4th July, took 9 weeks to construct, and has been warmly welcomed by local residents who previously had to make do with unsafe equipment which was old and broken.
Brambledown began by romoving all of the old play equipment. This enabled us to relevel all of the ground to create a flat area to work with. Whilst doing this, we turned over the soil to help with the later stages of seeding and turfing, and carried out several stone picks in the process.
The new play equipment took a huge amount of precision skill and time to assemble, due to the complexity of the long, unusually shaped wooden pieces.
The new Play Area now inludes a fabulous array of play equipment, which Brambledown Landscapes helped design. There are multiple areas to enjoy for both young children and older toddler and early teenagers.
The Play Area now includes a long zip wire, goal posts with netting and a grass junior football kick-about pitch, bucket swings, toddler safety swings, standard swings, a climbing net, slides, see-saw, roundabout, swingers, fitness trail with minkey bars and much more. Brambledown also constructed a new perimeter fence around the junior football pitch area.
Brambledown Landscape Services Ltd completed the Play Area works in some of the wettest weather on record before Lockdown began, and works were completed on the very last day before lockdwon, which included seeding, turfing and bark mulch under the play equipement.
Sadly, as per government guidelines, the play area has been fenced off because of Covid-19, but will see its official opening this weekend, to the joy of local Durham residents.
