Discovery Timber Play Ltd specialise in timber play equipment for schools. We also offer complete playground redevelopment from the free initial 3D design to the completion of the job. We also offer Canopies/shelters, fencing, decking, planters and generally everything else inbetween.
The company was formed in 2013 by Ali Prockter and James Marling. Both James and Ali worked for a playground company beforehand, Ali was the designer whilst James was in charge of production and Installs. The pair had big dreams and felt held back by their previous employer so decided to set up their own business, they have never looked back since. They have have over 20 years experience in the play industry between them and pride themselves on building premium play equipment at affordable prices, also on creating and maintaing friendly working environments with their customers and everyone else they come in to contact with. Both James and Ali have small children and understand the importance in encouraging physical, sometimes challanging play (away from computer controllers and ipad screens) whilst maintaing the highest levels of safety.

"Can highly recommend the team! They took care to listen to our ideas and worked with us to create our fantastic new playground. As we are a community playgroup we have had to have the work completed in stages as we fundraised. Can't wait to see the next phase of the development! Thank you so much guys!" Debbi Scobell, Uplands Playgoup, Gloucestershire

"I would recommend Discovery to anyone, during last year we had a basket swing fitted and I have to say the lads were extremely helpful with the needs of our school. They were polite and good at their job. All in all the school and myself are very pleased. We will not hesitate to use them again." Barry Smith - St Christophers School, Bristol
"I have known the guys for 5/6 years, we have used them as the first port of call for requirements for all external play areas. We find them to be conscientious and very cost effective, they always deliver on time, on budget and to a high standard" Gary Champion - Compass FMB
