Salhouse Broad Adventure Play area – Friends of Salhouse Broad

 

Salhouse Broad is popular to visit by boat, cycle or foot, being close to the village of Salhouse with its many facilities including pubs and cafes.  It is a destination is its own right.

The aim of this project is to create a bespoke natural play space for everyone to enjoy. The new play area will encourage children and families to engage with the stunning natural woodland adjacent to the Broad and within The Broads National Park. It will widen the offer to both local residents and families visiting the area, encouraging them to visit at any time of the year and to stay for longer.

With direct links to the river, local footpaths and well known cycle routes, it perfectly fits the vision of Love The Broads to enable access for all, including young children, to the Broads and its natural environment, bringing with it all the benefits to health and well being

The new play area will be built of natural and sustainable materials, with the chestnut timber sourced, processed and seasoned from sustainably managed local woodland. Timber from the existing play area, which is some years old, will be used in other parts of the site for repairs such as to the boardwalks etc.

CAP.Co, a local, Broads-based company who are international leaders in the field of creating adventurous, playful, educational spaces, have been commissioned to deliver this project
