Haughton Park, Scotland
HAGS were contracted to design and install a new £70,000 play area in Haughton Country Park, Aberdeenshire which was funded by their 2017/2018 capital programme. Haughton Park is one of four country parks in Aberdeenshire, 30 miles North West of Aberdeen and boasts a large open space with a striking backdrop of country scenery. Our high play value design has provided amazing adventure opportunities for a wide variety of ages and abilities with harmonic flows between the natural landscape and man-made play equipment. In addition, the layout allows children to develop from one challenge to the next.
For the younger users (age 1-4) we provided the Springer Seesaw designed with a nature theme to excite young imaginations and encourage all children to jump on for a ride. Furthermore, the younger children also get to enjoy a springer, a variety of classic swings and rota rocker.
For the older children, the Titan swing was chosen as it allows five players to spin at an exhilarating speed, providing hours of endless fun. In addition, we provided the Viper Swing, a Zipwire, a Net play structure along with a Uniplay unit crafted with a metal tube slide.
Kenneth Regan, Principal Landscape Services Officer for Haughton Park:
“We recognised that the existing play park was a little bit tired so we dedicated our capital programme to identify types of equipment the community wanted. HAGS have been excellent, the whole process has been relatively smooth, from meeting initially, getting the proposals in right up to the installation. The actual onsite work only took a fortnight to complete.”
The opening event was a huge success and local children are delighted with their new play area.
