This large camp run by The Scout Association, requested Playline Design's expertise in bespoke work in designing 2 playground areas for their long established site on the outskirts of Bournemouth.

Playline Design were awarded the £60k contract against 2 other well established professional playground companies due to our bespoke and natural looking design.

The brief was to create as much activity for the cubs, scouts and other children that stay on or use the facilities, to combine it in with the natural environment and create a natural play area.

For this reason our timber equipment was chosen, along with green components and our ever popular Woodland Play safer surfacing - some 380m² of it!!!

In the near centre of the main area stood an ancient knurly old Oak tree which other companies tried to avoid with their plans - we did just the opposite and designed a whole "village" of play towers with one main tower set around the tree itself.

The result is a fantastically challenging, individual and most importantly accessible for less able and wheelchair users alike.

For this reason the camp has invited the local special needs schools in to use the activities and to see just for themselves as to what can be done.

The second area consisted of a huge trim trail winding its way through the trees, again to provide challenges for many ages and abilities.

Just look at these pictures in detail as they do tell the story of what a wonderful project that this turned out to be.
