Easingwold Memorial Park held a lot of sentiment in the hearts of many at Image Playgrounds, being located in the busy Market Town where many of the staff grew up. They used the existing play area as a child and some now take their own children back there.
The staff here were delighted when Easingwold Town Council were awarded funding from North Yorkshire County Council for refurbishing the Memorial Park with a Play Builder scheme. Consultations took place with the Town Council as well as the local school children in order to fully grasp the desires for the play area.
A presentation was held at the town library for locals to come and have their say. Our proposed design was a clear favourite with an array of natural materials mixed with undulating surfacing gave the play area a new dimension.
Plenty of thought went into encouraging the children to play together and make the area into an exciting social space. The area is extremely well used and since the completion of the Play Builder Area the Town Council have been awarded more funding. We have recently completed a second phase to the play area incorporating an Infant Play Area.
