Smile, it’s Fitz Park!

“What’s great about Fitz Park play area is that it’s accessible to children of all age groups and abilities” (Judith Anderson, Regional Manager North West, Play England)

A state of the art destination play area has been created for the area of Cumbria. The flagship area is fully inclusive and will attract tourists and create lots of exciting opportunities for the area.

The Fitz Park Play Area Project in Keswick was driven by strong local initiative and spearheaded by the Trust. Their mission statement was to create, and maintain, a safe, well laid out, stimulating playground that is accessible to children of all age groups and abilities.

Through ideas, feedback, and funds, the project saw local children and parents and community members get involved by consulting on the design of the park. A dedicated website was set up allowing the community to contribute and view latest developments.

Fitz Park has a riverside setting with glorious open views and the equipment used in the park by Proludic reflects this theme.

The play park has been designed with 3 key age zones: Toddler, Junior and teenagers; identifying specific areas for the whole community to use. The toddler area uses sand surfacing, the junior zone is based around adventure play and the teen area takes its inspiration from extreme sports.

The paths and gates to the park are wheelchair and pushchair accessible and a central sensory area with other inclusive items of equipment means it appeals to children of all ages and abilities.

"Proludic have supported the Fitz Park Play Area project exceptionally well from the initial consultation stage right through to project completion and the launch event. The design and build service suited our project down to the ground and the play area has been a huge success and brilliant transformation of a well loved community area". (Rachel Graham, Fitz Park Lead Play Officer)
