Happy entertained children mean happy and relaxed parents!
In an increasingly 'more is more' world, businesses are starting to realise the benefits of developing their sites to provide more than just a one-off experience. At HAGS, we are seeing more and more business owners begin to invest in a well-designed play area to not only attract customers, but retain them for longer providing them with a greater return on investment.
External play areas can:
- Attract families to your site
- Increase dwell time
- Boost foot traffic
How HAGS can help you
At HAGS, we understand how to design play spaces that attract customers to your destination and keep them there longer. While parents explore your “grown-up” environment, the children can stay occupied on our fun play solutions that stimulate their imagination and challenge them physically.
Whatever type of play area you want to create, however big or small, we can assist you through the process. From designing to manufacturing the equipment right through to installation and aftercare. HAGS provides a fully comprehensive solution to ensure your satisfaction.
Some of our Projects
The Hop Farm, Paddock Wood, Kent
The Hop Farm in Kent attracts thousands of visitors every year. Their play solution features large bespoke tower structures that emulate those found in the famous listed ‘Grand Hop Tower’. This large adventure play structure has helped transform the site into an all-day attraction with visitors spending longer at the facility and repeat visitor numbers increasing.
On this site, a series of large towers have been linked together with bridges of varying types, thus creating a 'journey' across the site where the user can experience various challenges and obstacles along the way. Once through this series of challenges, you reach the destination - a balcony on the main building of the site, which was pre-existing and is now linked to this innovative play structure.
Camber Sands Holiday Park, East Sussex
One of Parkdean’s most iconic and busiest holiday parks, wanted large new play areas as part of a major refurbishment of their outdoor facilities. HAGS came up with a
marine-themed design to provide as much play value for as many children as possible using contemporary equipment.
The completed play areas look fantastic and are a real focal point of the park’s extensive outdoor facilities. We visited the site in the weeks following completion to find the play area buzzing at 8.30 in the morning! Dave Black, Parkdean Resorts, told us “I am very impressed with the play area...........I’ve got to admit, I had a go myself!"
Clarks Village, Street, Somerset
Working with Clarks Village, HAGS have recently designed and installed an exciting new play area, named King Arthur’s Forest. There is something here for all ages and abilities and it adds a new dimension to a family day out shopping! A fabulous place for the children to let off steam before the next round of shops are conquered.
Open all year round, the play area will keep children (and parents) amused for hours, with slides, swings, tree-house towers, bridges, rockers and friendly wooden creatures.
The Punch Tavern, Callcott, Cambridgeshire
The Punch Tavern, like so many Public Houses, is both a local and a popular tourist destination. The customer had a large, outside seating area which frequently hosted external diners. They wanted to provide a great new play area for children to attract and retain more families without losing their capacity for drinkers and diners.
The Licensee told us that during the weeks following completion of the scheme, that they had been really busy and had received great feedback from their customers. They particularly liked the number of features on the play equipment and told us children are entertained for hours, not just five minutes!
