With a brief to create a completely bespoke, unique, and iconic adventure play area to really excite visitors, Wellington Country Park enlisted Greenspan to realise their vision.
Wellington Country Park is set within 350 acres of beautiful park lands, near the village of Riseley, Berkshire. Offering a vast array of family orientated activities and attractions, the country park needed to be able to offer a higher capacity adventure play area to meet demand.
Greenspan’s specialist in-house design and build team worked with the country park to create an adventure play area that stimulates young adventurers with varying levels of height and challenge. The stunning, hand-crafted robinia structures provide a real wow factor whilst managing to sit beautifully within the natural woodland surroundings.

The adventure play area incorporates two gigantic 3-4 storey play towers with a range of exciting connections from wonky walkways to wobbly suspension bridges, and a number of routes upwards via ladders and nets. Once up on the higher-levels, young adventurers can take in the view and then whizz back down to the ground via a range of exciting slides and alternative play features.
The clever design incorporates a variety of low-level play features including dens, nets, and slides, providing younger explorers with the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the excitement too.

In addition to the two main structures other features include a mound placed play tower with nets and a slide, a bird’s nest swing, zip wire, and A-frame swings.
This stunning, iconic, and truly bespoke play area will certainly stick in the minds of the young explorers, enticing them back for endless hours of family fun. It is a fantastic addition to the country park.
