It has been scientifically proven that playgrounds are crucial to a child’s development. The freedom to interact with other kids helps with language, social and brain development among other things. However, when you are providing children with an area to play, you want it to be safe and durable. Thornbury Surfacing offers playground surfacing for Oxford schools and community spaces as it more difficult to find safer areas for children’s play in highly populated cities.

Children, and some adults are clumsy by nature. They are going to end up taking a fall at one point or another. The high tech pitch material that we use for our playground surfacing creates a softer surface underfoot and allows kids to play without worrying about a major injury on a rough surface. Our suppliers also allow you to pick from a number of colours, so you can make the area look fun and attractive to children and adults alike.

However, it’s not just school playgrounds that we provide surfaces for. We can install our multi-use game areas for; community play areas, leisure centre pitches, and college sports pitches. As the name suggests, they are multi-purpose and can be used for a wide variety of sports, including; football, netball, basketball, tennis and hockey. No matter what sport you are using our multi-use games area for, we guarantee you a hard-wearing area that will withstand years of high-usage.

We have do have a lot of experience in specifically surfacing playgrounds for schools; with clients like St Kenya’s School and PFI schools. You can rest assured that we know what we are doing, and our happy previous customers can testify to that.
