Case Study – Dol Y Felin Play Park, Welshpool

Client: Welshpool Town Council
Location: Dol Y Felin Park, Welshpool
Contractor: Ray Parry Playgrounds

Project Background

The existing climbing unit at Dol Y Felin Park had become outdated and was permanently closed off due to its unsuitability for continued use. Welshpool Town Council sought new, modern play equipment to replace the old climber, with specific requirements for toddler-friendly features and inclusive play options.

Proposed Solutions

Ray Parry Playgrounds proposed two new play structures to meet the Council’s needs:

  1. Steel Toddler Multiplay:
    • Designed to provide varying degrees of challenges for toddlers.
    • Features include:
      • Two platforms
      • Access steps
      • Chain net
      • Arched ladder
      • Fire pole
      • Play panel
      • 1m high slide
    • The equipment is colourful, inviting, and fun, aiming to engage younger users while helping them develop motor skills.
  2. Inclusive Spinning Dish:
    • Suitable for a wide age range and various abilities.
    • Encourages inclusive play and social interaction among children of different needs.

Installation and Features

  • Surface: The entire play area was finished with rubber mulch wetpour safer surfacing, ensuring a safe environment for all users.
  • Base: Both new play items were designed to fit perfectly on the existing base of the old climber
  • Outcome
  • The new equipment has been well-received by the Council and local resident and the installation has revitalized Dol Y Felin Park, providing a modern, inclusive, and safe play area for the community’s children.
