Play Indoors

We are proud to be the leading specialist in the design and build of bespoke themed indoor adventure playgrounds, play areas, and inspirational play spaces.

Play Indoors

When the great outdoors is not available, indoor environments can be just as much fun!

Transforming indoor spaces into fantastic natural or thematic playscapes that inspire children to climb, imagine, play, talk, sit and explore, whatever the weather!

Greenspan are experts in the design, build, theming, and decoration of bespoke and inspiring indoor play and recreational areas. We have worked with many clients and can help you with any project from small spaces, right through to a large, complex and multi-faceted schemes.

We have vast experience in play, leisure and thematic design and have used proven methods to create some of the most exciting, talked about, and heavily themed play spaces in the world.

Types of Play

Natural Indoor Play

Beautiful, eye catching, organic spaces, sometimes lightly themed: Our natural indoor play areas are mainly built from timber and incorporate many elements that children will find in their everyday walks of life.

No one design is the same but in our experience different play value would include: role play shops and houses, ladders, natural ropes, swings, look out windows, natural logs, natural obstacles, rivers, crawl tunnels, bridges, sand play and more.

Some people like to call this ‘bringing the outside in’….. whatever you want to call it, these areas are hard to dislike and often fabulously compliment rural settings.

Soft Play

Soft play is a type of indoor play that makes use of brightly coloured padded plastics and vinyl, padded rollers, balls pits and drop slides, etc and is generally modular in construction and design.

Although these play areas are great and often packed full of play value, we have found our clients usually request a more natural and bespoke look, allowing them to offer a USP and something different to what many have already got. It is a well-known fact to those who have experienced the timber indoor play structures that they offer equal play value (any play feature in a soft play area can be incorporated within a timber play area), they are designed to be as safe (can be padded as well if required) and the focus on higher quality natural materials gives a far better aesthetic appearance. We believe you can benefit from being different.

Themed Adventure Play

‘Instagram-able’, inspirational, exciting, one-of-a-kind indoor play spaces with the real ‘wow factor’.

These heavily themed play areas are Greenspan’s specialty and we have had a vast range of experience.

We can create you a story line, take on your own story/ brand or even work with well know IP’s and brands.

Each area is completely unique and will become your USP.

Latest Project

Active Kids Adventure Park

Greenspan Projects were delighted to engage with Active Kids Adventure Park to design and build a brand new indoor play area for their popular venue in Perth, Scotland.

The company saw an opportunity to expand upon their existing offering of outdoor play and farming attractions, and completely overhauled an existing barn… by knocking it down and creating the perfect playscape space! As the original barn was around a third of the size, the expansion has allowed for the attachment of new, re-designed buildings for the café and separate rooms for parties.

Active Kids Adventure Park prepared the new space – and handed it over to Greenspan as an empty shell to start the build – which became a blank canvas for us to work our magic on…

Initially, the design  incorporated more of an authentic woodland theme, yet the ideas soon began to take shape to include more of the fun farm favourites in keeping with the park’s existing offering. Utilising robinia wood for the structure, however, was a unanimous decision. At Greenspan Projects, we love the rustic aesthetic of this beautiful natural wood. Robinia is naturally a quirky material in its nature – so what you can create is a fun, playful twist on a natural playground. In our experience, this is what children love… it’s not regimented and uniform!

Once the plan was officially agreed, we set out the structures and the key features of the main towers – which were all built on site, allowing for an amazing insight for the client, allowing them to see the build really come together. We always make sure we capture the build step by step visually in pictures and in video to monitor the journey and process… as these are moments that you can’t really get back. Each build point is critical to allow for each component to work – such as the rope bridges meeting the necessary parameters, and being safely supported correctly in line with the technical design created by Greenspan. Safety and playability is of paramount importance throughout.

What is unusual about this projects is that the play is on two levels. The client has also created an S-shaped ramp halfway through the building, from one level to the next. Greenspan have been able to incorporate this into the design of the play… a minor shift to the level but makes it more unique.

Once the child steps onto any part of the structure, the journey through the play allows for climbing through tunnels, crawling, sliding, balancing, traversing rope bridges, and even leaping across giant foam rollers! There’s also an interactive projected floor for an even more immersive experience…

If the children need a break from play, or fancy a tea party mid-way, there’s even a miniature table and chairs for this. Climbing nets also allow for clambering across the structure this way and that… so no experience is ever the same. The entire floor and ramp also feature a shock-absorbent substrate with artificial grass for added colour and texture. Aesthetically, this brings the woodland theming a whole extra green element.

And last but not least… the murals. They are completely hand painted, bespoke and beautiful… which is the pièce de résistance of the indoor playground.

With this project, we have been lucky to work with a large space to help us to include such a variety of play. This has created a real eye opener… we know children will walk in and instantly their interest will be piqued… and excitement will start to grow!

It has been a genuine pleasure to bring this unique indoor playscape to life for Active Kids Adventure Park. To find out more about the company, click here.
