Going for gold with i.play


Olympic gold medallist Mark Hunter was on hand to try out our newest i.play installation, at a playground opening in Dorney, Buckinghamshire this week.

The final phase of the two-year playground development saw i.play installed alongside a selection of dynamic moving equipment; adding to the expansive play area, which already featured an aerial runway, jungle climber, tower unit and adventure trail, amongst other equipment.

The playground, which was partly Playbuilder-funded, sits just a few hundred metres from Dorney Lakes where the Olympic Rowing Regatta will take place next year. After having so much fun on the i.play, maybe Mark will drop by with his crewmates for some pre-Olympic training!
