Wicksteed Playgrounds, known for its bespoke outdoor play schemes, has designed and installed an engaging Arctic play experience at the Highland Wildlife Park.
The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) commissioned the play area for the park which is situated in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.
The main focal point of the play area is a giant climbing Rockscape, which features a polar bear standing on a block of ice with tunnels to explore underneath.
A double width slide onto bright blue seascape surfacing also features, alongside wooden planks between 3 floating glaciers, all watched by an inquisitive seal.
This exceptional play area is situated near the Polar Bear Kiosk to enable adults to relax while their children are occupied in a safe environment. This creative scheme also features a single slide into the play area from the kiosk, a balance board and both an interactive polar bear head panel and tactile menu play panel.
Delighted with the play area, Daska Mackintosh, Head of Operations and Visitor Services at RZSS Highland Wildlife Park, said: “This is set to be a really popular attraction at the park this summer and Wicksteed impressed us from the start with their creative interpretation of our ambitious brief, which was far and away the best we had seen.”
