A Sense of Wonder
Reintroducing people to landscapes through playful design
A Sense of Wonder aims to bring the people of Tiptree and surrounding areas together in one community play space to combat the problems associated with Nature Deficit Disorder. Play landscapes provide a green backdrop for play and support several possibilities for play enrichment. Although the overall premise of play typically focuses on children, there is ever-increasing importance relating to the physical and mental well-being of every age to engage with nature.
Over the past 150 years, 85% of UK heathland has been lost. Tiptree Heath is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and specific vegetation types found within the heathland can be used for education purposes, raising awareness for heathland habitats.
