When it comes to playground ideas, we’re sure you’ve got no shortage of inspiration. We work on playgrounds every day, and know what gives a play space that something extra special. Take a look at our top 10 playground ideas you could use in your space.

1. Fergie the tractor

Fergie is one of our most popular pieces of equipment. He inspires children’s imaginations and encourages creative play. They can grab hold of the steering wheel and pretend to be driving round the farm, or hide with their friends inside the tunnelled space.

2. Wooden stepping logs

Natural wooden stepping logs are a simple playground idea that is incredibly popular. Children love to test their balance on these logs and race their friends to complete the entire course. They’re perfect for playgrounds of any shape or size, and double up as playground seating.

3. Circular sand pit

Children love to engage all their senses when they play. Playground sand pits are loved by children of all ages and encourage creative and collaborative play. We supply our sand pits with a choice of solid wooden lit or lightweight canvas cover to protect them while not in use.

4. Zip cableway

The zip cableway is always a favourite with children looking for adventure in their playtime. They love the rush as they zoom down the line and race back up to the top for another turn. Including this in your playground design will really set you apart from other play spaces.
