Private members' Hurlingham Club gets new play area

A children's play area has been built in The Hurlingham Club's extensive landscape by the River Thames.

Sheffield-based Timberplay won the £350,000 contract to install a state-of-the-art play space at the prestigious Hurlingham Club in London.

Bordering the River Thames in Fulham, The Hurlingham Club covers 17ha of landscaped grounds.

As more members now attend the club with their children, The Hurlingham Club decided to update its child facilities and called in Timberplay to create a play space that works in harmony with the natural landscape. 

The rustic play space is split into two areas, a toddler zone and an adventure zone. As a centrepiece the play area, has a large climbing forest. Alongside this are two tree houses with interlinking platforms and bridges, together with climbing walls and balance beams.
