Climb Stones at Wicksteed Park!

Wicksteed Park By Wicksteed Park

Nature is full of hidden suprises! We would like to add a challenging natural play feature to the journey you can take around our newly restored lake.

Kettering Delivery stage

pledged of £4,078

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Yorkstone Towers can expose the adventurous side in anyone- whether you are King or Queen, Prince or Princess of the Castle!
The Yorktone stack will stand at an impressive 3 metres tall.
Guests walking around the newly created pathway encompassing the lake will almost certainly want to take up the challenge to reach the top and survey the picturesque scenery around them. Be it time trials with your friends, hiding in it's shadow or relaxing at the capstone with a hot flask before the exhilarating leap back down- there is something appealing for everybody.

What we'll deliver:

  • Set up a 3 metre Yorkstone Tower Play feature overlooking the Large Lake.
  • Surround with Gravelsafe- a natural looking, impact absorbing, safety surface.

Why it's a great idea:

Wicksteed Park provides a healthy, safe environment in a natural setting for children of all ages to explore. Natural play is eco friendly, accessible to all, inspiring and will stand the test of time. Play will always be a big part of our lives and Wicksteed Park will embrace that fact.
The Yorkstone is sourced from within the United Kingdom, is free from sharp edges and is naturally beautiful. The stones will compliment our landscape and will be used for generations to come.

Steps to get it done:

  • Our Park Groundsmen- Part of the Green Team will stack the sourced Yorkstone blocks.
  • Our Park Guests will enjoy the Play feature for many years to come!
  • Our Park Rangers- Part of the Green team will surround the climbing feature with Gravelsafe.
  • Our Park Volunteers will help to rake the gravel.
