Natural play equipment allows children to explore features such as boulders, logs and living willow structures in a natural setting.
Natural play spaces can include grass mounds and tunnels, with paths of different textures leading to spaces for den making, sand and water play and mark making. Other spaces can include activities such as noise/music making, and planting areas for vegetables and sensory plants.
Newby Leisure offers a complete playground design and build service that includes the full range of natural and sensory play equipment.
Children enjoy music and sound making with items such as pots, pans, drums and chimes. It allows self expression and develops creativity and physical skills.
Children enjoy digging trenches, making mud-pies and floating sticks in sand and water based play environments.
Areas of planting encourage children to understand where vegetables and food comes from as well as forming the basis for a number of educational play patterns.
Natural surfaces such as turf, bark, sand or even areas of wild flowers create sensory spaces that contrast to hard surfaces such as wetpour.
