Chapel Lane – Chirk

Play & Leisure were approached by two mothers who wanted to improve their current play area for the children of Chirk, by introducing more equipment specifically for toddlers as well as older children. Three companies sent through their interpretations and after consultation with the children along with their parents, our design was chosen.

The next step was to approached Chirk Town Council to present the winning design and ask for advice on funding. Sam Hughes, the clerk to the council, wrote a funding bid to WREN which was successful so work could commence as soon as possible.

The first part of the contract was to remove the outdated Swings, Roundabout and old Rocking Horse to make way for the new play area design to come together.

The new Play & Leisure equipment installed in it’s place, consisted of a 2 Seat Cradle/Inclusive Basket Swing, one of our Thames River Multiplay Units, Thunder Inclusive Roundabout, 4 Seat Elephant Seesaw, 25m Aerial Runway, Freeride Swing, a range of Activity Panels and multiple pieces of Street Furniture to complement the play area and a great place to relax and watch the children at play. the Wetpour safety surfacing, together with colour graphics created a more ‘fun’ look as well as conforming to the standards!

A tarmac pathway was constructed to run through the area enabling easy access to each piece of equipment and a brand new fence at the front and rear of the play area with two gates also installed ensuring an enclosed and safe area for children to play.
