Recreation Areas and Playgrounds - RAF Chessington Playground

Record details

Coppard Close, Chessington
  • Five-a-side
  • playground


The proposed plan brings the local aviation heritage of the site to life and caters to people of all ages.

The playground will be centred around a floor trampoline and new floor markings resembling the Esher bypass roadway to help children learn about road safety.

Children will be able to climb onto the new Chessington Control Tower multi play unit in the toddler area and look through the binoculars to search for departing and landing planes on the new runway feature. There will also be a sit down plane and talk tubes for children to communicate with each other while they play.

The wider play area will include a range of inclusive equipment including a roundabout, a sandpit with wheelchair access via a ramp and swings with added ‘You to Me’ seats that allow adults to accompany children on the swings. 

A new agility trail climbing net will replace the existing climbing net to provide a more exciting challenge for children.

The new teen area will include a zip wire and agility nature trail equipped with a number of exciting climbing and balancing challenges.

There will also be a new outdoor gym area, with a wide range of equipment to suit all abilities, including push up bars, an exercise bench and exercise ladders for complete body workouts.

The existing basket swing, multiplay unit, springer seat and sit down tractor on the site will be retained.
