About the Project

🌳 Greenspan Projects Delivers Adventure Play at Itchen Valley Country Park

We are thrilled to announce the completion of The Den and Badgers Burrow, the dynamic new play areas designed and built by Greenspan Projects Ltd for Itchen Valley Country Park in collaboration with Eastleigh Borough Council.

Nestled within the expansive 440 acres of woodland, walking trails, and a welcoming café, Itchen Valley Country Park has long been a cherished destination for local residents. Now, with the addition of The Den and Badgers Burrow, the park’s allure has been elevated to new heights.

The Den: Crafted with the youngest adventurers in mind, The Den beckons with a variety of engaging play equipment. From the enchanting basket swing to toddler-friendly swings and a thrilling slide, children can let their imaginations soar. Balance beams, a bridge, tunnels, and a climbing turret extend the adventure, ensuring endless fun amidst the natural beauty of Itchen Valley. The stunning Robinia timber structures seamlessly blend with the woodland surroundings, enhancing the park’s aesthetic appeal.

Badgers Burrow – Phase Two: The excitement continues with the completion of phase two at Badgers Burrow, catering to older thrill-seekers. This area boasts new swings, a double zip wire, a slide, and scramble logs, creating a haven for older children to explore and enjoy.

Since opening in the autumn of 2023, there have been some excellent reviews:

“We had an amazing family day at Itchen Valley Country Park! Our two children, aged 9 and 6, had a blast with plenty of entertainment.

The play park was a hit with the kids. Additionally, we discovered another fantastic play area near the woodland café. The play trail, adorned with various wooden play equipment, added an extra layer of excitement to our day. Despite the short distance, the experience was packed with fun for the whole family!”

“Our family has been visiting Itchen Valley for years, and we must say the new play areas are nothing short of excellent. The swings and slides are definite favorites among the kids. What’s particularly pleasing is the natural aesthetic of the play areas; it’s a refreshing change from some overly bright and artificial setups.

A big congratulations to everyone involved in creating these wonderful spaces! Rest assured, we’ll continue coming back for more family fun at Itchen Valley. It’s a delight to see the park evolving and maintaining its appeal for both children and adults alike. Well done!”
