Timberplay has been commissioned by The Super Slow Way to see how we can make the land that runs alongside the canal as playful as possible, for everyone!
They’ll do this by assessing how playful this stretch of the canal corridor is now, focusing particularly on the area from Brierfield to Nelson, and by running a number of exciting engagement events, trips and workshops.
We will then use all of this information to draw up a playful masterplan and strategy for the park.
Next two events:
Wednesday 25th May and Wednesday 1st June
Pop-Up Play Day in Lomeshaye Road Playground (BB9 7BD), in partnership with in-situ who are holding a pop up cafe. From 10am- 3pm. Free and open to all.
We believe that landscape is an essential part of designing for play.
• We design spaces to provide the greatest range of play opportunities, in a welcoming and engaging natural environment, always putting the experience of the children first.
• All our designs focus on the development of children, from physical challenge for all abilities, to creating areas for socialising; developing their communication skills and creating friendships.
• We promote learning through play, through connection to nature and all the senses.
We design for risk and challenge. We create memories and adventure. We inspire friendships and communities.
We don’t just create playground designs, we design playful places.
