Inspirational Playground Concept

The Train

A train themed playground
'Trains, no matter where in the world, all look similar, but distinctive. They transport people and materials and as centerpieces on a playground, they can transport enormous quantities of fun for children ...'

Play Designer, KOMPAN Design Studio

The Train - HERO

Destination enjoyment

The Train and Wagon present a fun and challenging play experience for big and small children from the age of four.

Within the cab of the train, a large dashboard motivates dramatic play and trains logical thinking. The kettle presents a circular space to climb through, and a 3-dimensional net allows for accessing the space under the train.

The Wagon, apart from inspiring the use of language in imaginative dramatic play, stimulates physical play, through climbing and sliding. All the inside and outside meeting points support social interaction.

Inspirational playgrounds from KOMPAN Design Studio are conceptual and can serve as starting point for your specific play landmark. Our skilled designers at KOMPAN Design Studio can take any idea or concept and create an architectural gem for you. For example, if you like the idea of the castle but want to incorporate a natural aesthetic, the KOMPAN Designers can create a wooden castle playground for you.

The inspirational playground concept shown here is designed by KOMPAN Design Studio. The playground is completely customizable, meaning final designs and data will depend on regional safety standards.

Frequently asked questions

Can I see this playground?

This playground is an inspirational playground designed by KOMPAN Design Studio. The playground has not been built, but is created as a concept meant to inspire you to bring a similar site to life!

Can I make changes to this playground?

Absolutely! Because this playground is an inspirational design concept that hasn't been built, we can make changes to the design and customize 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 when they come here to play, are motivated to keep playing and return time and time again, and develop physical, social, cognitive and creative life skills during play.

Is this playground inclusive?

Yes! KOMPAN firmly believes playgrounds should be inclusive and provide play for all. We work with universal design to ensure that children of all abilities can participate 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 leads to 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 certified - as is every product we have designed for more than 50 years.

Since 1970, KOMPAN has 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 can I 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 undertaking. From clearing the area for foundation to finishing 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 the load off your shoulders!
