Inspired by nature.
Designed for adventure.
Hand-crafted, bespoke natural play areas
We base our designs and installs around things we experience in the great outdoors, from climbing trees to splashing in a stream, we are influenced by what we see around us. We use natural materials and where we can we create on site, reacting to the children’s needs and the environment around us. Nothing is off the shelf when it comes to the Cool Canvas team. If you have an idea, let us know and together we can make it happen!
The design &
Oliver hand draws and designs your play space but also creates it on site with his skilled team. From design to install he is engaged and the vision is carried through. We have a workshop in Bolton with skilled carpenters which we combine with our ‘All Weather Warriors’ on site who love to do the bespoke chainsaw work. Check out our speciality Play Trees!
Oliver will initially do a Zoom consultation where he will gather the key information to pull together bespoke sketches and estimates to get the ball rolling. After that a site visit will be arranged to firm up the design. Once the project has been agreed and booked in, the Cool Canvas fairies will arrive onsite. Usually, it starts with some head scratching then the team react to the landscape and the priorities of the school and begin to create. The end result can sometimes look different to the initial design but its always for the best! We LOVE the process and the buzz that this creates. We don’t follow CAD drawings we let creativity take hold and this enables us to create some truly unique places for play and learning.
An Award Winning Team
As an award winning, family run business, we make it our aim to provide the highest quality outdoor play equipment for educational settings and private residences. Our installations overflow with natural resources which allow children of all ages the opportunity to express themselves.
The potential for learning has no limit in our tailor made play spaces where minds have the scope to imagine and bodies the freedom to move.
Each play space we design and install are completely unique but to get some idea of the designs available please check out our pictures, write ups and testimonials or get in touch via telephone, email or social media.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Olly and the Cool Canvas team.
