New flagship playground opens to the public

New flagship playground opens to the public
Play specialist Sutcliffe Play South West has designed and installed Coronation Park's new flagship playground, which was officially opened to the public last week.

The transformation, funded by Sedgemoor District Council, has created a destination park for Bridgwater.

Sutcliffe Play South West was awarded the contract to replace the existing playground with an exciting range of new play zones. This included an enclosed area for toddlers, an open plan area for juniors and teenagers, and a bark park for local dog walkers.

Sedgemoor District Council and Sutcliffe Play South West worked together to design a play area which includes 25 individual items of play equipment, in addition to resurfacing and fencing. As Coronation Park is a popular destination for dog walking, a bark park was also incorporated into the design for owners to work with their dogs on agility and obedience. The equipment, which is designed to reduce anti-social behaviour from dogs by providing a stimulating and exciting environment, includes dog tunnels, jumps and weave posts.

For younger children, an enclosed play area was created using a variety of equipment from the Sutcliffe Play Toddlerzone range, which provides a wide range of play opportunities designed specifically to develop key skills, including physical challenges such as climbing, balancing and coordination. Designed for older toddlers, to younger juniors, Toddlerzone "˜Sneak & Peak' was also installed, offering more challenging play.

For older juniors, the Mission Phantom unit was included in the design of the open play area with varying degrees of challenge, resting surfaces, slides and glides.  The play area also includes a large trampoline, double width hill slide and an exhilarating 25m cableway to encourage high energy invigorating play whilst keeping fit and active.

"Sedgemoor District Council's Parks team has found Sutcliffe Play to be willing to go the extra mile to achieve the excellent facilities the local community are now enjoying." Says Scott Mason, Parks and Open Spaces Project Officer, Sedgemoor District Council.
