Rainbow Net Tower

Co-Designed Adventure Playground
Children climbing and enjoying different levels of Rainbow Net Tower Made From Scratch
This project was initiated with a two-day landscape and structure design workshop with the children from the adventure playground. We discovered through the course of the workshops the children's need on this site for fire and den making, which we incorporated into the design workshops.
Analysis of workshop outcomes and the translation of the unique models led to the creation of a 6 metre high, multi-level hand-painted net tower with 25-meter zip line and a long slide exiting into a beach sandpit with cobbled river for mastery play. This project involved the careful evolution of the childrens' ideas, whilst extending the variety of play types available to them. Bespoke play theory and practical training was included for all staff.
