A new environmentally-friendly play park has opened at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway.
The shopping centre has partnered with Bristol-based natural outdoor play equipment specialist Touchwood Play to install the new play area made almost entirely of wood.
Touchwood specialises in creating amazing, unique play experiences where kids can use their imagination to have their own adventures, in a safe, stimulating, natural setting. E
The new play park replaces the former play area at The Mall, located outside the entrance to Boots, as it continues its efforts to make the shopping centre a great experience for its many families and younger visitors.
The play park will sit alongside the Paddington Bear Christmas Grotto which opened in November and the much-anticipated new Planet Ice skating rink.
Lizzie Taylor from The Mall at Cribbs Causeway commented: “We want to make The Mall a go to destination for all the family and the new play park will add to the wide variety of great activities Cribbs has for kids.
“It is great to work with such an innovative and unique company like Touchwood who provide amazing spaces for kids to play while doing so in such a sustainable way. As a local Bristol supplier, we are very proud to have collaborated with them on this project.
“We hope kids and their parents enjoy the new facilities on their next visit to The Mall.”
Speaking about the project, TouchWood’s managing director, Tim Harms said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with the team at Cribbs Causeway to design, build and install this highly creative new play area. We share many common values, and we are passionate about the use of high quality and sustainable natural materials which will complement their environment.
“Our team of skilled designers and craftsmen have really enjoyed building the many bespoke wooden features for this unique scheme, which will create a fabulous play destination within the heart of the Mall and provide a real sense of joy for the many visitors of all ages.”
