What was needed?
The staff at Ursuline required a large play unit to fit into a tight space. It was necessary that the unit looked natural and enticing. A tunnel bridge, natural block climb up ramps as well as a slide down from the unit was desired. They also asked us to include a role play house within the project.
What we did
Our woodland range was perfect for this job; inspiring children with roleplay whilst remaining active, the unit blended into the environment as it was tailored to fit between the two existing trees. We designed a bespoke unit for Ursuline incorporating the woodland theme. This bespoke unit included a sensory tunnel, slides and steps. We took the roleplay house one step further and incorporated the school colours within the design.
From the customer
Red Monkey created a purpose made climbing frame and activity centre for Nursery pupils at the Ursuline Prep. The designer listened to our ideas and wishes and came up with a design that met our specifications utilising the outside space to the best possible advantage. The new structure has a slide, 2 climbing slopes, a sensory tunnel with shape cut outs, 2 look out towers and an arched and textured bridge. As hoped for it occupies a large number of pupils at one time and there are no ‘traffic jams’ as children can enter and exit from several locations and levels. We were very pleased start to finish with Red Monkey and the children (and staff!) LOVE the new climbing frame.
