Park Supplies Playgrounds

St Heliers Primary Case Study


School Fitness Trail

Park Supplies was tasked to design a Fitness Trail in a previously unusable area of the school. The area was long, thin and sloping, with old tree stumps needing to be removed. Our creative design team came up with a plan using a series of competitive Fitness Trail stations in a linear fashion. We incorporated the St Heliers’ shield crest to personalise the equipment.

The fitness and agility equipment incorporates stations that provide a series of challenges, including balance, hand eye co-ordination, strength and agility. With our civil construction expertise, we excavated a cut and semi-level, installed drainage and constructed a retaining wall. We then installed the awesome Fitness Trail equipment and Play Matta safety surface. The addition of artificial turf along the side and end of the retaining wall has created a circuit for the kids to run back to the start of the trail. This once unusable area has now been transformed into a fabulous, personalised, outdoor recreation asset for the school and community.


Park Supplies were excellent to work with. They provided ample support in the design stage and site excavation. The install went smoothly and on time.
