V&A Playground, Tower Hamlets, London
Part of a two-site tender (the other being Pools Playground), this inclusive playground in London’s oldest purpose-built park attracts children of all ages and abilities from miles around.
Providing the full package
After being approached by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, HAGS submitted the winning tender, with a design which offered everything the Borough’s team requested and more. HAGS’ design provided the 16 acknowledged play types, whilst ensuring the playground was easily accessible to all and adhered to the high quality and safety standards the London Borough had come to expect from HAGS (being a previous customer).
A playground for everyone
An essential demand of the brief was to ensure that all children and young people, including those with special educational needs and disabilities were able to access the equipment. No problem for HAGS, with their history of designing inclusive play areas and having worked closely together with leading play and child development specialists in this area.
Stimulating equipment which brings joy to all
The playground provides a great variety of stimulating play equipment, including some unique eye-catchers like the Teeter Tunnel and RockR units.
