DYMCHURCH PLAY AREA, KENT

markhantonStudio were appointed to provide spatial planning and concept designs for play and recreational uses at Dymchurch Recreation Ground.

The major component of the site was for a new play area integrated within a new and existing landscape framework. A detailed scheme was prepared for: a toddler’s play zone, a MUGA, an adventure play area, all linked to a raised central seating/picnic area that allowed parents to monitor their children at play. The design aims were to include a strategy for natural play that provided benefits of risk and challenges in children’s development.

The proposals were used by the council as tool to raise interest and generate considerable funding, and its strategic objects were realized within the completed scheme detailed and implemented by others.
