The Level play area in Brighton receives the same magic touch as Princess Diana’s Memorial Playground in London’s Hyde Park. Land Use Consultants, the landscape architects behind both of these prestigious projects are embracing inclusion in their play area designs. Inclusive Play is delighted that some of our favourites were selected to increase the inclusive play opportunities in the area.
Land Use Consultants worked closely with Brighton & Hove City Council and local community groups and families to deliver a play area that captured the imaginations of every child at every developmental level.
Featured within the play area are the Inclusive Play timber oak orbs which jingle and move, offering a wonderful sensory experience for touch and sound. Often the focus within play areas is on high movement and physical exertion – which for some children is an impossibility.
The Butterfly – another gentler play experience, is the seesaw where children can lie down, stand up, or sit with friends or family to create movement. The design of the Butterfly allows children to sit assisted with carers if necessary or feel supported by the upturned arms.
The grand opening in September 2013 was a success, the community praised the area describing it as “intelligently designed and a really high quality development for the city”.
