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 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

Planters Garden Centre – Mountains of the World – 12 hole Adventure Golf Course

Be transported to the mountains of the world at Planters Garden Centre’s 12 hole Adventure Golf Course

Greenspan were selected to design and build a unique, one-off themed adventure golf course. The chosen theme was mountains of the world.

The course is made up of 12 themed holes, with each hole boasting an impressive scaled version of a famous mountain. It tells a story of each mountain with interesting facts offering an educational element as well as fun for all. Around the course is edged with a smart decked seating area for those wishing to relax, to watch on while the rest of the family enjoy an exciting game.

Since opening it has seen an impressive throughput since opening and has been an excellent addition to the venue. The centre’s owners are also delighted to find an increase in visitors that are travelling from much further afield to come and enjoy their attractions.

The adjacent Sky Trail attraction has benefitted from the accompanying golf course, with usage significantly increased from last year’s figures.
