Nether Silton Community Playground

Natural community playground for all

The Challenge

The  playground in Nether Silton needed to be the social heart of the village. On the boundary of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, Nether Silton is the epitome of village life. With a population of 100 people and no bus service the locals were very keen to have a suitable play area for the village children to play on in a safe environment.

Nether Silton Play Area Committee was formed to help organise the project. Paul Nicholson took the lead and had already secured some funding through the North Yorkshire Play builder scheme. Through the committee’s hard work fundraising, they were able to match the funding from the scheme and make their community playground dream a reality.

The Playground

Consultations then took place between the design team here at Image Playgrounds, Paul and members of the community. It was quickly decided that this playground needed a natural look and feel. We were tasked to use only natural timber products with minimal steel additions. We are very keen to design bespoke items to suit the needs of all our clients so happily suggested we design a purpose built play tractor.

The tractor fitted in perfectly with our other natural play equipment. We brought in wooden stepping logs and a weaving bamboo trail, as well as an exciting climbing tower with a slide. Children also love the social time they can share on the basket swing.

The Nether Silton playground was a huge success and warmly received by the community. It also brings in more residents from surrounding villages to use the play area and other amenities in the village.
