Sconce Park - Newark

Sconce Park - Newark and Sherwood Council

One of our bigger projects! 


This project has been installed by ourselves recently for Newark and Sherwood District Council.


It is their largest and most prestigious play area, so we were very honoured to have been taken on board to work on this project.



From Weary to Wonderful


The council contacted us to help them find a solution to the messy areas that they had at the park.


Due to heavy traffic, a lot of the areas became muddy and bare.


The Grass Mats they had in situ weren’t cut out for the challenges the surface was facing from such heavy use.


After discussions with the council, we decided that the best solution would be to install a Notts Sward® Needlepunch play surface to the areas.


The Play surface was installed on top of a new stone sub base to give the best drainage and avoid any muddy puddle developing through the surface.


A Notts Sport® ChildsPlay® system was used under the Needlepunch surface, to meet all the required critical fall heights of the various apparatus within he play park.


This installation has now provided the park with a cleaner, much more appealing play area for the children and has saved on washing muddy clothes!!
