Logness Monster spotted in Harrogate

A bespoke children’s play structure has just been completed at RHS Garden Harlow Carr in time for the start of the summer school holidays.

Children get to grips with the newly created Logness Monster



The ‘Logness Monster’ is the latest creation of bespoke play features designed for the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) northern garden, Harlow Carr in Harrogate.

Natural play is a key feature in the garden and plays an important role in helping children interact with their natural surroundings. The new wood structure, which includes a ‘tongue’ slide shooting out from the monster’s mouth, adds to the other family offerings, including a bird hide, log maze, observation bee hive, willow dens and a large woodland tree house.
