Open and welcoming playground equipment for St Andrews
When we consulted with the public last year about potential improvements to the playground equipment at St Andrews in Burgess Hill, residents raised a number of concerns about anti-social behaviour in the area and stressed the need for the new playground equipment to be robust. Taking this feedback on board, we designed the new playground to be more open, so there are no hiding places, and we have specified steel equipment, which is less likely to be damaged.
A 2.4m tall metal climbing frame with nets, monkey bars, fireman's pole and slide will be the focal point of the new playground. There will be a new toddler slide with mini play-house, a spinner bowl and four different types of swing seat, including one where people can sit face-to-face, so parents and children can swing together.
New seating will be provided and a new rubber surface will connect all the new equipment.
