To further enhance the outdoor play and education features at Hillbrook Primary by installing striking playground upgrades.


We had previously given the school playground an extensive make-over. On this occasion, the school wanted to add some additional features to their outside play area. The upgrades included planters and new stand-alone features such as chalkboards, water walls, table tennis, table football and play pods.

We designed and created themed areas including a dance studio with reflective wall, a trim trail and a story telling area. The new areas were all fitted with colourful safety surfaces.

Bespoke solutions such as sign-written gates and floor markings are all part of the service we provide.

At Hillbrook, the bespoke signage we supplied included custom lettering for the gate, the flooring and the fine story telling chair. Examples of the upgrades are shown in the project gallery above.
