Robinia Themed Play
Nature-inspired Themed Playgrounds
Full speed on imagination, cognition, and language development
Robinia nature-themed playground equipment is the ticket to exploring and understanding life and enables children to explore the world from their perspective. With KOMPAN's themed timber equipment, children can place themselves in daily situations as our equipment includes familiar connotations such as steering a boat, playing shop or filling their car up with petrol.
In addition, the inclusion of an owl, a parrot, or an iguana sculpture within your play space, sparks imagination and supports language development.

Robinia is the preferred material for KOMPAN’s nature inspired playgrounds. Known as Black Locust in its native USA, it is now an intercontinental plant, having first been introduced to Europe just over four centuries ago.
The Robinia tree itself is a triumph of nature. As a tree, at every level it performs. It grows in poor soils, it feeds nitrogen into the earth encouraging other plants, it flowers to be the source of Acadia honey, its leaves breathe out Co2. It adapts well in urban areas, gracing many boulevards and streets. When cut as timber, the stump regenerates and grows back quickly. It is highly sustainable. The timber is fine-grained, strong and resilient; it naturally repels fungi and bugs - the perfect material for long-lasting nature based playgrounds.
