Northwood College girls are over the moon with new school playground

After many months of working alongside leading equipment provider, Pentagon Play, Northwood College are delighted to reveal their new Junior School playground.

Designed to provide an invigorating outdoor learning environment, the exciting area includes an Adventure Trail which features parallel bars, pull up bars, a double sided climbing wall, climbing poles, net traverse, rocking log traverse and a rope swing traverse.

A Tryfan Climber offers flexible routes, several crossing points and various different ways to climb. As the girls explore their new equipment they are developing their balance, confidence, upper and lower body strength, core stability, co-ordination and gross motor skills.

Through the installation of a Timber Outdoor Gazebo, we have created an excellent base for outdoor learning. The Gazebo can house up to thirty children protects the girls from rain and bright sunshine.

To create a natural-looking playground we have installed artificial grass and bark and have surfaced around the planters and trees to create a mini football pitch. Project Director, Mr Brown commented: “We are extremely pleased with the new outdoor area in terms of the design, the space and the adventure it provides. The girls are already becoming more creative in their game play and they are much more active, playing in larger groups and with all age groups playing together which is great to see.”
