When Gosport Borough Council needed to re-vamp their old paddling pool, we stepped up to the challenge to create a truly unique wet and dry play space. Whilst the splash pad sits on top of the old paddling pool a wall was removed in order to make one large space and have a dry play area. We installed one of our own soundplay units, a large snake swing, nest swing, toddler climbing unit and a wobbly bridge for the daring! The different zones are linked with sensory paths and zones in which the parents can relax and watch the fun! This is a park with a difference...
Pirbright Village Primary School have been campaigning and fundraising for the past year in order the install the wonderful new playground for the children that was much needed. Planning permission was required as the Tema castle was a staggering 4m high! When we finally got the go ahead in order to build the playground, we set straight to work. Having set aside a 4 week build period, we impressed Pirbright School by finishing in a mere 3 weeks! As you can see in the case study, this was a great achievement. Pirbright now have 4 great areas in which the children can express themselves: a Performance Area, A story-tellers area, A music area (featuring our own soundplay range) and last but definitely not least the impressive Tema Castle unit!
Marion Road Playground was the larger of the two playgrounds that we supplied and installed for Norwich City Council. We themed both playgrounds around the Red Lion which features on Norwich Coat of Arms. Marion Roads has both Lion spring rockers and a red lion play tunnel. It is this attention to details which shows the research and effort that we go to in order to keep all the end users happy. Using recycled bark to replace the tired wetpour on this project was in keeping with our efforts to always look for ways to reduce our carbon footprint as a company.
Eagle Baths was the smaller of the two playgrounds we supplied and installed for Norwich City Council. Due to the size of the budget, we had to be creative and think which equipment best suited the needs for the local children. We installed the impressive Omikron Play Unit which offered a variety of play options. We also refurbished the existing swings and painted them the brilliant red in order to match the new equipment and keep the budget down.
SSP’s first all metal playground equipment was installed in Derby at the beginning of the 2013. The entrance pathway lead down into a central ‘O’ where we placed the DDA accessible roundabout, ensuring that this playground had something for everyone. This park was very popular on it’s first day and was officially opened by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse! Even they couldn’t resist going on the equipment.
SSP were appointed to build a splash pad for Dartford Borough Council which also severed as an irrigation system to water their open spaces and plants. 100% of the water which is used from the splash pad then goes through tanks and systems so it can feed the gardens. Several bespoke features went into this splash pad to really pull Dartford’s Edwardian theme together. We always tailor make every splash pad to best fit the clients exact needs.
Right in the heart of Haywards Heath, lies Victoria Park, a beautiful recreation ground, bustling with life and excitement. Having had some playground equipment updated in recent years, the only thing missing from this play haven was a splash pad!

SSP were selected to work with Newcastle City council and their Landscape architect Jeannette Fielding to design and build a new Interactive Water Play playground in keeping with Natural environment. The design included a stainless steel tables and channels with two Pumps to fill the water flowing through these then runs through a patterned concrete stone rill with sluice gates where children can dam the water creating puddles and fast flowing water just like a real stream.
A key element of this project's design brief was the creation of a whole new landscaping layout for a park's walled garden. A traditional fountain is the stand-out feature here, so the SSP team used the location to provide a flat area of paving adorned with jets and water features; the concept was to engineer not only a fun and interesting space for children, but also one that would be suitable for public events such as weddings, corporate events and concerts.
Riverside Park Wallingford is a popular visitor attraction, lying alongside the river Thames with its own campsite and outdoor swimming pool. SSP were selected from stiff competition to work with the South Oxford District Council to design and build a new interactive splash play area on the site of the original paddling pool.
This 200m2 splash pad needed to integrate well with the award-winning play site it sits next to in Whitley Park. This was achieved through the use of the same materials wherever possible and the imaginative use of existing site features such as walls, changes in levels and boulders.

This state-of-the-art 455m2 splash park was opened in April 2011 to replace an existing paddling pool that had been popular with young families for many years. Leighton-Linslade Council wanted to retain a water-based facility but it needed to be a cost-effective, low maintenance and eco-friendly solution while providing an exciting addition to the local amenities. The splash park with re-circulating water supply, includes a variety of in-ground and above-ground jets and sprays set on a bright safety-surface.
This historic park was opened in 1933 as part of a government building programme following the First World War. As with many traditional community spaces, Waterloo Park included a paddling pool that was in need of repair and becoming expensive to run and maintain. Following a period of consultation with local families and schools, Norwich City Council found that an interactive splash park was the clear favourite. SSP Water & Play was selected due to their design solution, that was sympathetic to the historical site, together with their experience in working on similar projects.

space is based on a scaled down version of the whole country
park and includes its own ‘Ironstone Quarry’ climbing
wall and wide range of high energy timber play equipment, natural
