Needlepunch surface makes garden a blooming great place to play

A needlepunch surface supplied by Playrite has been used in the refurbishment of a children’s play area at a heritage garden.

Play area at Valley Garden

Valley Garden in Harrogate, originally developed as an attractive walk for visitors to the spa town, covers 17 acres. It is an English Heritage Grade II Listed Garden and includes beautiful historical buildings as well as varied shrub and flower beds, plus a café and outdoor games facilities, including a skate park and children’s play area.

Harrogate Borough Council decided the play area needing upgrading and was sold on the benefits of a needlepunch surface for the playground. After a full tender process, Impact play from Dura Sport was chosen. Impact play is a highly durable and versatile playground surface, especially suited to areas of high use. It is certified in line with BSEN1177.

Impact play is made up of a needlepunch top surface supplied by Playrite; this durable and cost effective solution is available in 14 vibrant colours and is an ideal choice for playgrounds.

The old surfacing around the equipment was removed with over 2000 sq m of the new surface used to transform the area.
