Overall Assessment

This playground is set up in two sections, a natural area to the side of the school and a traditional area at the back of the school. It would be difficult to monitor kids directly at both places although they are not particularly far apart.

The two play spaces make the playground pretty varied and will appeal both to kids who want a more typical playground to climb on as well as kids who like to challenge themselves on natural elements.

The roller slides and saucer swings really add to the traditional playground and my daughter adored the set of rings which we had never seen before.

The musical features produce great sound and are also a lovely addition.

The playground equipment is a bit more challenge than most – my 4 year old had a more difficult time with it than at many playgrounds. Overall it is a great school playground and a fantastic addition to the community.
