Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) has revealed a new outdoor play space, created predominantly using sustainable natural materials that have been foraged or repurposed from other areas of the Park.

YSP’sTechnical Team constructed the area with material including windfall trees, stumps, willow and refurbished picnic benches.

The area, named Little Wild Wood, features tunnels and a dome made from natural willow, tree stump stepping stones and a wooden house.

Local sculptor Brian Fell, whose studio is based at YSP, has also donated three giant sculptures
to the area.

Director of YSP Clare Lilley said: “Creative play is central to YSP’s cause – play at all ages improves our physical, social, cognitive and emotional well-being and is an essential element of children’s learning and development.”
