Loaded with play activities

Coming to the rescue

The Beach buggy spurs children’s dramatic play with its recognisable theme. The rocking movements, alone or with friends, train the sense of balance as well as muscles and cause-and-effect understanding in young children.

Rocking together

Rocking is great training for children’s sense of balance and younger children’s understanding of cause and effect.

Challenging climbing

The net encourages children to climb high, which develops their motor skills, muscles and self-esteem.

Sway in the shade

The hammocks provide a gently swaying meeting point that allows for a break.

Keep an eye out

With a variety of climbing, swaying, sliding, gliding and, not least, tactile elements at ground level and up, the lifeguard watchtower offers fun play and training of children’s motor skills, muscles, social play and imagination.

Frequently asked questions

Is it possible to see this playground?

This playground is an inspirational playground designed by KOMPAN Design Studio. The playground has not been built, but is drafted for conceptual purpose to inspire you to make your special place come true.

Is it possible to make changes to this playground?

Yes! Because this playground is made as an inspirational design concept and hasn't been built, we are able to make changes to the design and to customise it to your specific needs.

Are there many play activities on this playground?

Yes! All our KOMPAN Design Studio inspirational playgrounds are loaded with play activities that develop body, mind and friendships.

This is our way of making sure that the children are wowed to come to the playground and play, are motivated to keep playing and come back again and again, and while playing develop physical, social, cognitive and creative life skills.

Is this playground inclusive?

Yes! Playgrounds should be inclusive and offer play for all, that’s the KOMPAN philosophy. We work with universal design to ensure that children of all abilities, including children with disabilities, can participate in the play and enjoy thrilling play.

Is this playground durable?

Yes! All KOMPAN playgrounds are built to withstand decades of weather and usage.

Our engineers carefully calculate the static strength of each playground structure, and our production uses only the highest quality materials. Fifty years of testing through play around the world has given us extensive knowledge on how to achieve extreme durability. This results in minimal downtime and a low total cost of ownership. For generations of children, this means endless hours of play.

Is this playground safe and certifiable?

Yes! All KOMPAN inspirational playground equipment is safe and certifiable - as is every product we have designed for more than 50 years.

At KOMPAN we have, since 1970, developed outdoor play equipment that stimulates and challenges children, with safety as the paramount consideration. Every part of the design, engineering, production and construction process is geared to ingrain safety into the final products that are certifiable by TÜV.

How to install a playground like this?

At KOMPAN we turn ideas into reality - all the way from defining the playground concept until the playground is installed.

Building a playground is not child’s play. It is a major construction. From clearing the area for foundations to finishing off the site, it involves heavy equipment, extensive materials, complex products and expert knowledge. All these factors must be precisely coordinated to avoid delays. Our expert teams have done it many times and are happy to take this load off your shoulders.
