Belgrave Crescent is one of Edinburgh’s most sought after residential locations, located directly opposite possibly the finest gardens in Edinburgh, the nine-acre Belgrave Crescent Gardens. These span the full length of the Crescent and down to the Water of Leith.

Caledonia Play was approached to install some new play equipment and to do some sympathetic repairs. The company provided value by only repairing what was required on the fence, removing damaged and rotten equipment and utilising the existing safety surface. All the equipment was to be fitted into a specific space that was an unusual and awkward shape due to the location of several trees in the area.

The new equipment would reduce the daily and weekly maintenance and care that was required to ensure that the site was to a safe and required standard. The equipment also allowed for inclusive use of children who require additional support needs and of a broad age range.
All timbers used are pressure-treated with non-arsenic preservative salts and impregnated with wax.
The removal of the existing Seesaw Unit, Low Up and Over and the Hanging Log Step Structure included disposal with a licensed operator in an environmentally appropriate manner.
