Elephant Park, Jersey
The Pink Elephant Park in Jersey is famous on the island because of the iconic pink elephant slide. The parks equipment and play equipment had become outdated with some falling into a state of repair and a revamp of the park was required. With no specialist play and surfacing contractors available on Jersey SSP Ltd were asked to visit, advise and quote to carry out the works.
Transporting surfacing materials and play equipment from mainland UK to Jersey was an important consideration whilst undertaking the works. Firstly to ensure that all materials required were transported and then ensuring the transport was cost effective.
The upgrading of the play park included new cradle swings and clamber stacks together with additional seating and commercial sun shade umbrellas. The equipment that was inspected during our initial survey and deemed to be safe had minor repairs carried out and was colour coated. The old and curled rubber tiled safety surfaces were removed and replaced by SSP Wet Pour Rubber Safety Surface and of course the Pink Elephant Slide for which the park is synonymous remained taking pride of place with a new impact absorbent wet pour rubber safety surface surrounding it.
Following the successful completion of the works SSP Ltd have been invited back to the island to tender for other play surfacing and equipment works in other parks and for schools on the island.
