Established on the site of the former Maidstone Zoo around forty years ago, Cobtree Manor Park is a leading attraction in the county of Kent. Now adorned with a range of modern adventure playground facilities courtesy of eibe Play, the unusual hilly parkland still retains some of the buildings left over from its previous life.
The children’s playspace, originally installed in 2011, features swings, curvy slides and a zip wire, as well as bespoke climbing and balancing equipment. Certainly those associated with the development of Cobtree are delighted with how things have turned out; a spokesperson stated,
“Maidstone Borough Council is thrilled with the overall success of the Cobtree Manor Park play area project. The bespoke design still sits perfectly within the landscape and provides the immediate focal impact as you enter the park that we were looking for. eibe were a pleasure to work with, providing a collaborative approach to bringing the concept of Maidstone Zoo’s history alive for younger generations. With eibe’s support throughout the project, this enabled all challenges to be met and the resulting outcome to be achieved.
“We now do have the ‘WOW’ factor for all families visiting the park!”
