Construction Zone

In the Construction Zone, a 10m circular field is enclosed by a switch-back pathway that undulates over built-in storage tubes. These contain all the necessary materials to build a shelter; poles, tarpaulins, calico sheets, sisal string etc.

Pre-drilled sockets in the Zone floor, to take hazel poles or flexible plastic pipe, allow for a diverse range of possible layouts for simultaneous construction by groups or individuals.

The surrounding landform encourages appraisal of the finished projects from different vantage points while offering the opportunity during playtimes to run, climb and tunnel.
