Adventure Playground

Adventure play area, The Wooden Workshop. Oakford Devon (27)

We were approached to create an adventure playground for a home in Teignmouth. Built against a raised bank and to incorporate an existing Oak tree, this platform really makes maximum use of the available space.

Design and features

Working closely with the customer we created this large, L shaped platform design, with an additional ground level platform and roofed area to provide some weather protection. The existing tree will provide shade in the Summer providing a fun space to play all year round.

This adventure playground features a climbing wall, cargo net, moulded plastic slide, swing, a zip line and a hammock.

Construction

After some minor groundwork to create a level surface we constructed the main platform, the rear of the structure was set into the existing bank and incorporated a new featheredge fence to enclose the garden and create a barrier from the nearby road. The playground is supported by 100mm x 100mm posts, which are fitted with post shoes and set into concrete for complete stability. The 50mm x 150mm framework was then built using joist hangers for strength. We used decking boards to create a non slip floor on both levels, and fitted spindled railings and grab handles around the entire platform.
