The Easingwold Memorial Park playground held a lot of sentiment in the hearts of many at Image Playgrounds. It’s in the busy market town where several of our staff grew up. They used the existing play area as a child and some now take their own children back there.
Easingwold Town Council received funding from North Yorkshire County Council. The money was to allocated for refurbishing the Memorial Park with a Play Builder scheme. We met with the Town Council as well as the local school children. Our playground designers wanted to fully grasp the desires for the play area from all who would use it.
A presentation was held at the town library for locals to come and have their say. Our proposed design was a clear favourite. It had an array of natural materials mixed with undulating surfacing. We wanted to give the play area a new dimension and keep its natural charm.
