Goodwood were keen to make the racecourse more accessible to families and they wanted to create a play area at a section of the racecourse. Ben Charrington, the Assistant Operations Manager at Goodwood had seen the Priory Park playground in Chichester designed by Russell Play and he was very impressed with the design. He contacted us and asked us to create a design for the Lennox enclosure, a family section of the racecourse, using our Spielart timber range.

The brief was to design a playground suitable for all ages and abilities to give children a variety of play experiences. A bespoke timber play unit with slides, net access points and walkways was the centrepiece of our design. We added a roundabout a challenging log climber and a basket swing. The play park was presented by Butlin’s and was opened in time for Goodwood’s May Festival Weekend of Fun For All the Family.
