The Links Play Area was funded by the Kennington Parish Council, Playbuilder and Aiming High funding. Our involvement with consultation events allowed us to get a good feel for the community needs and understand how the recreation area is used as a whole.
There are two play areas, one designed to be safe for younger children, the second area emphasises more energetic play, with a curved natural wall and mound giving the area an identity.
Features created include an intimate area containing interesting planting design and a play house, curved deck access and specially made sand pits at varying heights.
Local craftsmen were employed to implement our design for a bespoke drystone wall with innovative features encouraging natural play.
