We’re here to help you create a playground which encourages outdoor learning and valuable play.

With so many products to choose from, not to mention the option of a bespoke playground design service, you might be unsure where to start.

That’s why we’ve created a playground design inspiration guide.

The Process

It’s always important to have the ‘end goal’ in sight when choosing your playground equipment supplier.

Therefore before you start exploring our products, you might want to know a bit more about what it’s like to work with us.

Hand Made Places work on a five step process; consult, design, make, install and enjoy. We work with you from those intial ideas through to installation and beyond. Our team of dedicated sales advisors, caftspeople and installers will work with one common end goal, creating a magnificent playscape for generations to enjoy.

Take a look at “The Process” to see an in depth description of the five steps between contacting the team and seeing children enjoy their new playground.

You can search by product, or play type to find a playground which matches your vision.

Funding Guide

At Hand Made Places we are committed to offering competative prices for long-lasting, excellent products.

That's because we want to keep excellent play accessible to as many people as possible. However we are very aware that many schools and town councils do not have the necessary capital just "lying around."

Our playground equipment funding guide will introduce you to the kind of financial support available to educational bodies, local authorities and not-for-profit organisations.


Finally, our brochures and resources are available to view online or download.

Most of our resources are here to help you incorporate play into learning and learning into play – something at the heart of the Hand Made Places goal.

Top Tip: Children can flick to the back of the Hand Made Places to try their hand at playground design.

Remember, you can begin adding products into your a quote bag at any point. The beauty of the quote bag is that it can be saved and shared: you can show your playground equipment ideas to others and turn it into a collaborative process.
