Space to play and explore are essential for the young and the young at heart, and Wintringham has been designed with a series of green spaces – linked by walking, cycling and scooting routes – providing safe play areas and quiet spots to relax.
Key play areas created in the first phase include:
- Ripple Park: this pocket park play area has a meandering play trail either side of the pathway to encourage “play on the way”, with wooden play equipment set in rolling grass shapes and ornamental trees. The bespoke wave form encourages children to run up and down, jump off and sit on, inspiring imaginative play.
- Bret Park: nestled amongst large pine trees, the play tower offers many ways to play, climbing to the top up ladders, ropes or netting gives tree canopy views, while log steppers and ornamental boulders set in a wave landform create more natural play experiences.
The next major play destination will replicate an Iron Age Fort structure, engaging youngsters in the heritage around them as they play.
Outdoor pursuits for all ages will also be incorporated into the Wintringham development with multi use game areas as well as cycling and running routes and circular walks offering active people a of range options.
