KINGSBRIDGE PLAY SPACES

Bespoke and colourful play area for the recreation ground in Kingsbridge.

The aim was to to create quality play environments that would become a new focal point for the local communities. Through a range of processes including Den Building and hands-on design workshops, MeiLoci collaborated with children, adults, artists and other community members.

Kingsbridge play area now provides a wild adventure space carved into the side of a steep woodland site, which flows out into the flatter recreation ground, providing a colourful backdrop of accessible and inclusive play. Water play is revealed through integrated and interactive sculptural elements within the play space and allows water to flow thorugh the landscape and connect with the environmental and wetland habitat zones within the park.
