A durable playground for a tough climate

Bergen, Norway has more rainy days than any other city in the world. In fact, it rains 240 days per year. That’s two days out of every three! Espira Daycare Centre in Bergen wished for a playground that would delight the kids and be tough enough to withstand the rough climate. 

They also wanted something that would complement the beautiful nature that surrounded the daycare centre. The landscape architects were drawn toward KOMPAN’s Robinia line. Robinia is an environmentally sustainable and durable hardwood that is the core material used in KOMPAN’s nature playgrounds. Now, several wet seasons later, the wooden playground is still standing strong, attracting the young of Bergen and looking as good as it did on day one.

It's constantly wet, but there is no hint of rot at all. This is one of the great features of Robinia. It's perfect for wet climates.

Playful ways to prepare for kindergarten

Climbing is a great exercise for muscles and motor skills such as cross-body coordination. The Double Tower with Valley Bridge is filled with fun and scaled climbing challenges that stimulate children of different ages and abilities. The rotating, gliding movement on the curly climber isn't just joyful, it trains the motor skills that prepare children for important life skills such as secure navigation of space, for instance in traffic. The Forrest Shop and Lake Boat both inspire many different kinds of role-playing and social interaction. By being able to enter from all sides, these play stations are very accessible and encourage inclusive play.

Joy of movement: motor skills, muscle, cardio and bone density
Joy of being together: teamwork, tolerance and sense of belonging
Joy of learning: curiosity, understanding of causal relationships and knowledge of the world
