Job Done - Design and build new playground in Essex village

Project: New play area at Lady Nelson Playing Field

Client: Tendring District Council

Contractor: Miracle Design & Play

Miracle Design & Play was one of several firms to draw up proposals for the play area in the village of Thorpe-le-Soken near Clacton-on-Sea, Essex.

The area includes a giant play unit with a 4m high space net, but the must-have item is a 25m long zip line. The design involves two zones, one for ages two to six and the other for sevento 14-year-olds.

Basket swings, a toddler play unit and rotators for toddlers and teens cost £50,000, said designer Andy Steel. His company worked with Tendring District Council and Thorpe-Le-Soken Parish Council.

"Miracle pulled out all the stops to ensure that it was delivering the exact project that was laid out in the brief," said parish council vice-chairman Daniel Land.
