We are part of a close ‘family’ of European and UK Richter partner companies; designers, makers, project managers and installation teams with experience and knowledge of complex play installations in a wide variety of settings.
Here are a range of projects our team have helped clients, architects and building contractors create.
Brooke Park Playspace, Co. Derry 2017
Nature Play Ireland MD, Harry Harbottle. “We have carried out a lot of research into children’s play equipment, and the new play park has a natural orientation that makes it look that bit extra special.” We supplied a range of equipment to Brooke Park including a cradle nest swing, combination platforms with slides; standing carousels; wooden swinging horses; timber play-hut combinations; jumping discs; wobble dishes; ladders; climbing walls and more.
Play Park, Ballyarnett Country Park, Co. Derry 2017
Play Park, Ballyarnett Country Park, Co. Derry 2017 This Play Park, located within Ballyarnett Country Park, incorporates three separate zones of large-scale timber play equipment for toddlers, children and older children. Speaking at the official opening of the Play Park, the Deputy Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Councillor John Boyle, said: “The play park is further evidence of Council’s commitment to providing a high level of accessible play provision for children across the City and District through the Invest in Play programme.” Darren Kirby, Strategy Manager for the Outer North Neighbourhood Partnership, warmly welcomed the opening of the Play Park, saying that the “significant investment will enhance the infrastructure and offering within Ballyarnett Country Park and continue the extensive regeneration efforts that are taking place across the area.” The Partnership see the play facility as important for a variety of reasons as they are “keen to promote the importance of ‘play’ for children and young people and we’re confident that this play park will act as a focal point for the Country Park – a place for children to play and forge new friendships, while ensuring that they remain healthy and active.”
The Curragh Playspace, The Curragh, Co. Kildare - 2018
Most recently, Nature Play Ireland Ltd has been involved with the work on The Curragh Racecourse project. Working on this scheme, We delivered a fantastic children’s playground complete with houses, slides, a mound and a challenging climbing structure. Nature Play Ireland Ltd MD, Harry Harbottle, said: “It is great to be involved in big projects such as this one at the Curragh Racecourse, where on a race day up to 40,000 people will see children enjoying our work. So it was pleasing to directly supervise this installation working with the contractors to ensure a top quality finish.” Harry added: “With everything we do we always start from the basis that play value comes first – it’s not just about selling equipment, it’s about making great spaces for children. We operate in a very sustainable way, either environmentally through the choice of materials we use or from a business standpoint through the way we form relationships with our clients. Sometimes this might mean that some jobs are not suitable for us, but that’s fine as we always look for clients that share our values.”
