The Running Horses Pub
Date: March, 2010
As with many family orientated pubs, the Running Horses realised the potential that having an exciting play area can have on business. With parents knowing that there is a safe and enjoyable space for kids it can become a big attraction for them as a place suitable for all ages.
The pub was lucky enough to have a large grassed area and as part of the brief wanted to separate a 2-5 year old play area from an older age range, so a timber picket fenced border was installed, of which within the perimeter was a twin cradle swing and springys.
The rest of the new playground had a full range of play equipment, including our first aerial runway with starting platform. Galvanised steel brackets made sure that the structure can withstand the forces that are placed upon it, with pressure treated chunky timber logs providing the main supports. Elsewhere, a trim trail was included as well as a bespoke climbing unit and twin flat seat swing.
The pub was delighted with their new play area and has brought in a large number of new visitors. With the pub situated close to a canal, it’s a great stop off point for passing barges and tourists.
