West Midland Safari Park’s new interactive and multi-sensory play area was to be themed around popular children’s TV and CBeebies character ‘Boj’ – a rare bilby from the Australian outback. Each of the zones are named after popular characters from the show and have different activities and objects to explore. ‘Giggly Park’ is designed specifically for younger visitors to the Safari Park.
The Percussion Play instruments were to be placed in ‘Denzil’s Music Mayhem’ area.
Percussion Play partner Greenspan Projects Ltd designed and built the fully immersive, multi-sensory play area which covers approximately 1500sqm. ‘Giggly Park’ themed zones include; adventure playground, super-fit challenge zone, sensory trails complete sensory planting and dens, and a central bandstand where visitors can meet ‘Boj’ at various times throughout the day. The park also includes Mrs Woof’s diner which means there is something for everyone from play, sport, music to nature trails and refreshments afterwards. Every detail of the park from the character’s houses to even the toilet block was meticulously and authentically designed to fit in with the Pesky Productions brand.
The musical play area is named after the character Denzil Woof (a dog, obviously!) where children are able to explore their inner Rockstar as they play on the Tubular Bells, Freechimes, Babel Drum, Congas, and Harmony Outdoor Xylophone. The instruments are neatly installed in a wetpour rubber surfacing, a consistent hard wearing almost seamless surface, perfect for high-traffic areas such as this.
The £850,000 themed ‘Giggly Park’ children’s play area opened in summer 2017, bringing the TV show alive for the little fans of Boj. Young visitors can explore and play in the numerous themed, interactive zones and immerse themselves in 'Boj’s world' and, of course, make some great music in Denzil’s Music Mayhem.
