Project: Toddler play area in Windsor Great Park
Client: The Crown Estate
Contractor: Squire's Landscape
The prestigious Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park is now more attractive to younger visitors following completion of a play area earlier this month.
The toddler play area, in the public garden created by Windsor Great Park deputy ranger Sir Eric Savill between 1932 and 1959, was constructed by staff from Squire's Landscape.
Three contractors spent six weeks working on the project, which was opened on 10 July by representatives from park manager the Crown Estate.
Squire's Landscape contracts manager John Culpin said the play area had already proved a huge hit with visitors. "It is not necessarily something you would immediately think of in the Savill Garden ... But it has attracted a huge volume of younger families and ... it's been mobbed every day."
The area includes a shipwreck, climbing frame, toddler swings and deck.
