Each project we are asked to undertake has its own challenges and we pride ourselves in providing innovative solutions and thinking outside the box.

Types of Outdoor Play

Activity Trails

Timber play trails offers varying degrees of challenges to engage both younger and older children.

Interactive props and storytelling encourage children along the trail where they will encounter a range of challenges, varying heights and elevations to achieve a more immersive experience.

They require a relatively low budget, but achieve great interaction and interest from children.

Standard Play Areas

These kinds of play areas are the type you find in the local park, housing development and even some school playgrounds.

Although each playground design is unique, they are often developed from a standard range of timber play equipment like, swings, climbers, clamber logs rock walls etc.

Sand & Water Play

We have seen a significant rise in the demand for water and sand related play over the last 5 years.

Kids love sensory play and a sand and water play area can provide endless hours of fun. We believe sand and water play encourages children to use their minds and imagination. This encourages children to use a different part of their minds. They can build, create, carve, mould, transport and mix products and find out how textures react, mix and develop when in contact with each other.

Assault Courses

Encourage people to get active…promote teamwork by adding an assault course. It’s a great use of outdoor space complementing the natural surroundings, tailored to the existing landscape.

Great for families and community groups…corporate teambuilding. Add a dog agility course and even the family pet can enjoy the experience!

Zip Lines & Rope Courses

Children love to explore. They find that climbing rope walls scrambling through tunnels and flying down zip lines is out of the ordinary and something that is normally discouraged at home.

On the trails they can play solely or as a collective as they pick their way through. These are often found in wooded locations as the trees act as the major structure.

Themed Adventure

Adventure play can be designed and built to fit into literally any space making it the perfect addition to your visitor attraction. These are normally sited at destinations where people can spend the day.

From enormous treetop soaring play towers to wide spread play trails, slides, swings and more. Incorporate it with a picnic area, situate it near a café or next to an ice cream kiosk… a brilliant way to entertain the family and increase dwell time.

Latest Project

Tingley Garden Centre, Mission Out

Tingley Garden Centre – Mission Out

Tingley Garden Centre instructed Greenspan to help them bring their new Mission Out adventure to life.

Situated at their newly opened second garden centre, Tingley’s Mission Out saw a golden opportunity to maximise the use of the additional land to construct an outdoor activity park, specifically aimed at young visitors aged 6-14. Their idea is for a great value, access-all-areas day pass to active entertainment… all outside, of course!

Having seen the previous work that Greenspan has completed for multiple adventure parks, Mission Out invited Greenspan to create a concept that would attract the right clientele and provide hours of endless fun for all involved.

This led to the creation of the High Ropes course – a two tier adventure which allows visitors to complete the mission of manoeuvring through multiple mid-air challenges. This included innovative, bespoke obstacles designed to put core climbing skills to the test to provide a fun-filled experience… and sense of real achievement on completion!

The High Ropes might be an adrenaline-fuelled adventure, yet Greenspan have worked to ensure safety elements of the course are of paramount importance and the use of protective equipment, harnesses and the mandatory attendance of safety briefings are all in place. This included guidance from our in-house Project Manager and high ropes specialist.

Surrounding the High Ropes is the 9-hole adventure golf course, which allows visitors to play and remain part of the action. This leads on to the high bank slides with climbing ropes for an extra element of movement and fun!

Complementing the overall adventure is the three-story Jump Tower, which allows daring visitors to make the jump into Mission Out’s supersized airbag pillow, whether it’s from 3m, 4.5m or 6m.

Since opening officially in mid-July, the venue has seen ticket sales soar – where booking space has become limited due to the popularity of the adventure park.

In particular, the High Ropes course has been incredibly popular, with families admiring the well-balanced levels of challenge and fun – even for the smallest of climbers!

Mission Out’s team leader commented:

“It’s been so exciting to explore the kind of activities we should include in adventurous play, and we have had lots of input from our own children who have helped us to create an epic outdoor adventure! Greenspan have helped make this dream a reality and we have loved working with them. We are also delighted with the work Greenspan’s team have done to ensure fun and safety are combined – and we have truly appreciated his high ropes expertise. EPIC!”
