Learning, developing and building children through play should be natural.
Play spaces should be fun, an environment that children & families wish to return to time and time again.

Natural environments

Bringing planting into your playground adds whole new dimensions – touch, smell and even taste.

Theories playgrounds are built by landscapers, not just contractors, so we’re adept at choosing planting that enhances a child’s play and learning experience.

Working with you

Working with you to build the play space that fits your needs is our key to success. Understanding what and for whom your play space is being used, means that we can ensure the greatest balance between fun, education and development, whatever age or physical restrictions your visitors may have – be it the in the lake district, peak district, north Wales or Great Yarmouth, offering play space facilities creates your own holiday resort that doesn’t require your visitors to take a short drive to enjoy themselves, it’s within walking distance of their accommodation.

Safe & secure

Play spaces for any holiday park or camp site should be safe environments for everyone. Using the best quality materials, leaving no screws or bolts exposed to small fingers or to snag on clothing, is what we believe should be included as standard in all of our playgrounds

Dedicated aftercare

A Theories playground is built to last, but all playgrounds need regular checks and some TLC from time to time. Our dedicated team can carry out regular safety inspections, ensuring your playground is always safe, spotting problems or maintenance requirements early on, saving your needless worry and costs for major upgrades, repairs or replacements in the future.

Playgrounds and play spaces are a cost-effective investment for any family run or chain owned holiday parks or camp sites. Quite simply, they are an attractor of customers, especially those with younger children. Family friendly play spaces offering a safe play environment are appealing for those looking to keep their children of all ages entertained.

Adding a free bespoke play space to your park or site gives you a unique selling point in a very competitive industry, a place for play, but importantly, a place for family time and often less than a minutes walk for those staying with you.

Be it caravan or camping, a well designed play space can incorporate anything, from crazy golf to seating & picnic areas that add comfort for older family members and encourage your visitors to stay longer.

Tell us about your visitors, what you want to achieve through your play space (maybe you’re thinking of running a kids club with an adventure trail play space) and your budget and we’ll design a family friendly holiday park play space that will enhance your space and increase your bookings.

How do Theories work with holiday parks and campsites to build them the perfect playground?

1. Initial meeting

Online or off, we’ll listen to what you are looking to achieve and the results you are wanting to get from your new play space.

We can show you our playground portfolio and highlight examples of similar projects we’ve tended to.

2. Design phase

We agree a playground design fee (fixed or flexible) and ensure that everyone is 100% clear on what’s to be achieved and how much time we have on the preliminary designs.

We then push into the design to bring your visions to life.

3. Contract

When your playground design has been approved we’ll draw up a fixed price contract for the build.

With a detailed instruct on completion order, we’ll provide a detailed programme of work and conduct a health and safety assessment, organise the site and move to the next stage.

4. Construction

We may have to bring in external contractors for some specialist work, but we’ll take care of everything.

Our team endeavours to make the development of natural playgrounds a wholesome and educational experience for staff and children alike – some aspects of our work can become interactive events for the children too.

5. Planting

Depending on the final planting scheme we’ll usually wait until all of the construction is completed. This helps us to better visualise the final type of planting to best suit and complement the playground and its surroundings.

6. Aftercare

Far from being just a playground design and build company, we provide a great degree of aftercare.

This can include replacing and repairing any pieces of equipment that may have become damaged due to unforeseen circumstances.

Natural low-maintenance planting can be used to enhance the look of your play space, softening hard areas. Importantly it can enhance the educational aspects of your play space introducing touch, smell and sound.



Hardwearing and long lasting, astroturf has the natural look and feel of grass, but is easier on maintenance.



Using top quality materials means that your play space will last longer and require less maintenance, repair or replacement.



How your playground is constructed effects it’s level of safety. We ensure that there are no fixings left proud to snag or hurt fingers.

What schools are saying about us

“’We are thrilled with the new playground, the children love it and it does make the teachers’ work easier as the set up is so accessible and easy to maintain.

The climbing frame works really well, the children use both the upper and lower level, which is a home corner at the moment. As we are outdoors in all weathers the climbing frame not only offers shelter but it’s an exciting and relaxing place to be in. The design enables the children to lead and initiate different games in different areas rather than just run around dangerously.’”


Ey Leader, Copenhagen Primary

“Theories have been essential in helping us realise our plan for a new and innovative adventure playground. It has proved highly successful and popular with the local children and staff alike. The play environment designed by Theories is supporting creative play activities in many different and varied ways.”

Tim Wallder

Play Director, IGC

“Theories have consistently been able to listen to our staff’s wishes as well as the needs of individual children and go on to create unique, challenging and interesting play environments where every nook and cranny counts and where every child can explore their own varied play needs safely and happily.

Theories are a one-stop professional playground solution, seamlessly integrating every aspect from helping formulate a design brief, producing design proposals and budgets, to carrying out the build contract with their own skilled staff, and finally offering on-going maintenance support.”

Head, Phoenix Primary School, E3
