Creating a new play area
Our playground equipment for town and parish councils bring together, increase accessibility and inclusivity, and cater for a greater diversity within communities. For over 75 years, HAGS has been designing, manufacturing, and supplying playground equipment to local town and parish councils throughout the UK.
At HAGS, we can help your local community come together and embrace the outdoors. Having outdoor areas that can boost creativity and physical activities will improve the lives of everyone by encouraging healthy play and exploration.
Not only that, this can reduce anti-social behaviour, provide a safe and enjoyable space for children to play and help your area become more active.
Benson Parish Council: "[HAGS design] was the most comprehensive and imaginative [of all submissions]. Communication was outstanding all the way through the project and we felt fully supported. The active building stage was efficient and worry free."
How can HAGS help?
We provide a free consultation service
We know that playground equipment can be a significant investment for any town or parish council. Spending time at the start of the project and getting everyone “on board” is vital to the success of the project, so we recommend an initial consultation workshop with all interested parties to assist with the community engagement.
We offer a funding solution
We understand that space and budgets can be limited when it comes to creating new and exciting play areas. At HAGS, we will support you here with an introduction to a dedicated independent specialist that has a track record of raising funds for Schools, Parish Councils and Community Groups.
Free playground planning advice for town and parish councils
As part of the consultation process, we will produce several draft designs with plan views and 3D visuals until we finally reach consensus to a final design that everyone is happy with. Our designs are free meaning that you do not have to worry about or incur any ‘up-front’ costs for these services. Speak to us about your budget, prospects and requirements and we’ll be able to provide personalised draft designs.
One stop shop
We ensure that your play area will be fully installed to the latest European Safety standards, and completed to a high quality. Our playground and outdoor equipment is made from strong materials such as steel and timber, to produce durable that will withstand intensive play all year round. This gives you peace of mind that your play area is safe and ready to use.
Inspection and Maintenance Services
If the responsibility for keeping a safe and secure playground rests with you and not the local authority, HAGS offer peace of mind through regular operational and annual inspections of the play space plus repairs if deemed necessary. If capital budget is limited we can make your money go further by full or part playground refurbishments to bring tired play areas back to life.
We understand the importance of getting the right spare parts, quickly and efficiently, to our customers and that’s where our UK manufacturing and spare parts operation comes into its own.
