the design

A playground with dreamy rope bridges and an inviting treehouse

The stupendous treehouse is clad in a combination of rustic horizontal timber cladding and Cedar shingles offers an imaginative structure which is elevated amongst the tall mature trees within the woodland. The large external deck features an abundance of play equipment such as a cargo net, climbing wall, fireman’s pole and jungle bridge to name a few! What better way to travel through the forest than via a magnificent slide! The play area has been designed to flow in an adventurous journey, with unique spaces to hide away within the sheltered treehouse, as well as a range of energetic play experiences that build strength such as climbing and balancing and allow the children to venture higher into the canopies.
