The Beating Heart in the City of Colour

This world-first playground was put into a bleak industrial city to revitalise it and encourage the workers to stay. In the brand new and colourful city of Aura, the playground came first, to entice people in. Aura is the first Australian city to be designed and constructed to the world’s highest environmental and sustainability standards, a bit like the centerpiece KOMPAN Corocord playground that was part of the first phase. Each weekend it drew in thousands of would-be settlers, helping them to make up their minds and become citizens. The playground’s theme was inspired by nature and then ignited by design to fit into Aura’s maxim, City of Colour.

They love the rope walks. I think it´s the fear factor because it´s up so high - that´s the fun factor.

Built to WOW

Like KOMPAN itself, the Aura playground was born out of observation. The actions and environment are re-creations of the thrill and fun of climbing in and out of impressive hollow tree stumps, but without the bugs. The design is unique, with flexible features that combine to make a one-of-a-kind piece. The Sky Walk, fast slides, climbing net, and balance rope offer a thrilling experience for the local children.
