Barrowcliff Play Area

Play Area Construction

After a resident-led community partnership secured funding, Groundworks North Yorkshire appointed CLS to construct a new play area at Barrowcliff, Scarborough. 

The new park is a flagship project for the Barowcliff Big Local Partnership and replaces the former play areas in Briercliffe and Gildercliffe. The park was themed around the classic family musical, The Wizard of Oz and involved the construction of a separate toddler area, older children's area, all-weather ball court and a picnic area. Art sculptures designed by local children were also installed.

Project Overview:

  • Clearance and excavation of the area.
  • Land drainage installation.
  • Installation of a retaining brick wall, pin kerbing and drop kerbing.
  • Construction of a Bitmac toddler play area and pedestrian footpath.
  • Supply and installation of fire smart grass matting.
  • Supply and installation of topsoil and turf plus seeding and planting
  • Installation of metal railings, pedestrian guardrails and birds-mouth fencing.
  • Supply and installation of play equipment, street furniture and litter bins.
