Project: Adventure playground in Cambridgeshire
Client: Cambridgeshire County Council
Contractor: Sutcliffe Play
Sutcliffe Play is putting the finishing touches to Cambridgeshire's £1m adventure playground for the county council. Two bespoke barges were installed last week at the Wisbech site following a military-style operation involving a 300-tonne crane and a team of specialist contractors.
The barges reflect the region's maritime history and include indoor learning spaces. On board there is a crafts room and loo with wet-room facility for children with disabilities. Other design features include self-build areas for children to create different play environments, fire play, natural play, social areas and an amphitheatre.
