First Look at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet’s £400,000 Playground

McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Ashford has shared a look at the designs for its brand new play area, which will be the first guest facility delivered as part of the centre’s £90 million expansion currently underway.

The digitally-enhanced playground will feature immersive, augmented reality play experiences and include one of the UK’s tallest open space Robinia tree house towers, as well as being customised to deliver a one-of-a-kind experience for the outlet’s younger visitors, featuring a bespoke Garden of England theme.

Opening this spring, a major focal point for the play area will be the seven-metre high Robinia tree house, which has been designed exclusively for McArthurGlen and will be the only tree house of its kind in the world. The structure will feature a range of exciting play challenges alongside a host of innovative new features in the playground, including tactile and sensory equipment, interactive play with smart phone technology and educational activities.

The centre’s old, much-loved children’s play area has been dismantled and donated to Wingham Wildlife Park.
