Timberplay create amazing play and public spaces. Our team are dedicated to supplying and installing unique play equipment.

Damming, Channelling, Propelling

You only have to see a child playing on a beach to see how much fun can be had with sand and water. Sand delivers fun in spades, and can be even more fun when combined with a water source such as a pump. You can create a play offer in a small sandpit, or in a larger ‘beach area’ for many different players at once. Timberplay can advise you on the most suitable equipment and landscaping for young children, for older children, for a combination of ages or for individuals with disabilities.

If you have a large play park area, you can also combine sand or water play with other types of feature and equipment. For instance, our Building Site encourages children to work together to transport sand around the site. Water channels, basins, pumps, springs, spouts and fountains provide endless opportunities for play, including the damming, channelling, splashing and propelling of water. As well as the sensory pleasure they produce, this equipment can teach children about gravity, mass, volume, materials and combining different materials. Timberplay’s range includes a Water Scoop, Rotating Conveyor and Archimedes Screws for learning about transporting water. Water wheels, water switches, locks and gates teach players about ways to direct and control the flow of water.

Sand and water can be used for different maths and science lessons, as well as in storytelling activities. We have equipment for use in children’s areas of public playgrounds; in urban areas and play areas situated near houses; for adventure playgrounds and attractions; near outdoor swimming pools and in water parks; nurseries, schools, children’s homes; and we even supply some equipment that is suitable for indoor use.

Combine sand and earth and what do you get? We supply play products for children to roll their sleeves up and get dirty with mud, for example, Mud Tables and Mud Kitchens, which are particularly appropriate for Early Years play areas. The learning potential of working with mud is exceptional, and as long as a water source is available to clean up afterwards.

Channelling, propelling and transporting water and other materials also gives children physical exercise. Our timber ships work well alongside sand and water and have been used in many prestigious developments across the UK, including the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground, London; Priory Park, Reigate; and Daisy Nook Country Park, Oldham.
