Day 3. 4 Children, Play, Inclusion and Nature: A virtual tour of Harwoods Adventurous Play Space


Harwoods Adventurous Play Area is a vast bespoke natural play space in the heart of the highly urbanised Watford town on the commuter link to London. This is an exemplary example of a Head of Parks passionately supporting, advocating and investing in landscape design with an outcome that has benefitted local people and has also attracted many visitors from all around the area and London. It is a really special space with an inclusive play strategy embedded into the heart of the design.
