Carlow School Playground
This is a large urban primary school for ages 4 – 12 years, boys and girls.The playground was designed and installed to cater for the junior years; ages 4 -8 years. Each item of play equipment was carefully selected to promote and develop different aspects of physical, social, and cognitive development: for example the Combination Tower with slide and climbing wall promote social interaction, strength, co-ordination and general fitness. The castle themed playhouse promotes imaginative play. The surfboard springer promotes balance and confidence. The three way ball-catcher can be used individually or for team games.

This eco playground uses the existing grassed area to the front of the school. This location was chosen for the junior playground because this part of the school is clearly visible from the busy road, which should act as a deterrent to after school and weekend visitors. The 1.2m high safety fence surrounds the playground which is very difficult to climb over as there are no intermediary cross bars upon which to get a foothold.
