Sophie Atkinson, National Trust Area Ranger at Springhill thinks:

'Natural play is all about children exploring and enjoying the natural environment and here at Springhill we’ve combined natural materials with fixed play elements to create an amazing outdoor play space. Using our own skilled staff and volunteers the play area was created from natural materials such as tree trunks and willow structures, alongside other play schemes constructed from timber products.

Children of all ages will be able to get in touch with nature and to create their own stories and games as they play in this natural setting. We hope they have as much fun playing on it as we did making it. We’d love to hear what you think and see some pictures of your own natural creations.'
