A playground that turns a shopping centre into a family destination
What better way to make shopping a unique family adventure than with an exciting outdoor playground? That's exactly what the Moisselles-Domont shopping centre near Paris, did. With four and a half million visitors a year they wanted to highlight the experience for customers with children and build a landmark that would entice children as soon as they see it from the parking lot. Parents and children love the new focal point, as the 7-meter tall play tower allows children to have fun while parents find it easier to shop. The owners are so pleased with the success and high quality of the playground and have planned further play areas in some of their 25 other shopping centers across Europe.
"It is a real asset to have an outdoor playground because the children see the playground immediately from the parking lot. It makes them want to come in."
Sandra Jorge, Project Manager - Eurocommercial
Play adventure 7 meters high!
The highlight of the playground is the 7-meter tall climbing tower playground structure, where each play cube offers something new to discover. To get from the bottom to the top the children face different challenges such as a climbing net, ropes with discs, or a tunnel with a steep climb. These promote physical activity and train cross-coordination. Climbing is not only fun but also brings thrills and rewards.
The higher the children climb, the better the view that they can enjoy through the bouncy membrane or the bubble window. Getting to the top is only half the thrill because the only way down is to speed through the tube slide. Designed for every ability and need, play panels on the lower level motivate children to learn through play and offer the perfect opportunity to socialize and make new friends.
