AWARD WINNING EDUCATIONAL PLAYGROUND DESIGN AND OUTDOOR LANDSCAPING

STORY TELLING AREA

- Inspire childrens' imagination in the outdoor environment

A zone designed for reading storybooks, talking, engaging in quiet reflection and listening to music.

Children love stories. The outdoor story telling area from Educational Landscapes adds an extra dimension of the outdoor environment.

Children can also use this area to eat and drink outdoors.

Ideas to consider:

  • Size of area will depend upon its proposed use
  • Zone should be sited in shade or semi-shade and where children can move freely between it and another open area (ie away from area of high levels of activity).

Possible inclusions:

  • child-sized picnic tables
  • combined seating with planters
  • seating combining raised/lowered 'stage' or mini performance area
  • large story-telling seat
  • upended and fixed logs
  • parasols
  • canvas canopy
  • covered timer outdoor classroom with seating

Our story telling areas can be built as a one-off or included as part of a wider play area development scheme
