In the natural setting of Rushden Lakes, we constructed several split log picnic benches and an open sided picnic shelter, offering visitors the chance to shelter from the elements without removing themselves from the natural environment. Due to the natural setting of the venue, the brief was to create a rustic seating area in keeping with the surrounds, and we also had to build a bridge to offer access to the structure.
In addition to the picnic benches and shelter, we also built a pond dipping platform, several other picnic benches, and some feature seating, including the dragonfly bench you see below.
In addition to all of the above creations, we also made a series of natural play areas, giant animal sculptures, and wooden carvings at Rushden Lakes, all in keeping with the natural, rustic theme. You can find out more about the natural play areas at Flights of Fantasy, our sister company, specialists in bespoke play equipment, and you can see an overview of all our creations at Rushden Lakes here.
