Artane School Playground
Located in Artane, North Dublin the area is known nationally as the home of the famous Artane Boys Band. This large, urban primary school caters for children aged between 4 – 11 years of age. The playground was designed to assist pupils in three ways: a, to create an activity based option for break-times b, to improve pupils fitness levels c, to improve concentration levels due to improved fitness levels A small triangular shaped, previously unused, grass area to the front right of the school (as one drives towards the school), was chosen as the site for the Obstacle Course Playground. This area was reasonably flat, had good drainage and the grass growth was well established . The eco grass matting system was perfect for this type of ground.

The play equipment can be used individually or as part of an obstacle course. The obstacle course begins with the Burmese rope bridge, then the overhead bars (monkey Bars), balance beam (Low level ). Next is the Vertical spiders web scramble net, where the child scrambles up the net and negotiates their way through the centre of the net and down the other side. The obstacle course continues as the child climbs up the inclined climbing wall, which requires considerable strength and co-ordination to do so. When they reach the top of the climbing wall they drop into the Play tower. On reaching the top of the Play tower the child feels a sense of accomplishment. The child slides down the safety slide to complete the course.
