INSPIRATIONAL PLAYGROUND CONCEPT
'The Brachiosaurus is like an enormous play trail inside a huge climbing net. Like stretching a double Corocord® Spacenet … first in one direction and then a little bit in the other direction. That is actually how we designed this structure ...'
Play Designer, KOMPAN Design Studio
An enormous play trail
The outlook bridge on top of the Brachiosaurus play structure appears to be a floating trekking walkway secured by safety netting on both sides. On the ends there are challenging and fun-filled access points with membranes that have climbing grips ... and of course the structure can also be accessed taking a shortcut directly climbing through the climbing net. At ground level the structure is packed with play features. There are suspended membrane houses placed very close to the ground, liana ropes and sturdy drops to swing on.

Turning themes, ideas and stories into playgrounds
KOMPAN Design Studio
For more than a decade, we have built tailor-made and highly unique playgrounds that WOW children and adults to come and play. Our playgrounds can come in a range of themes and can be localised and thematised to your local area and community, or to fit a specific environment. No matter the theme all our units are packed full of play value. The play structures are made of highly durable and vandalism-resistant materials that make them last for decades to come. Also, they are safe and certifiable like all products we have built over the past 50 years.
Loaded with play activities
Entrance in motion
The membrane bridge makes a nice, swaying climb up into the Brachiosaurus. This trains children’s sense of balance and space, which help them navigate their surroundings securely.
The sturdy drops make for an extremely appealing, swaying break. Sitting, hanging or leaning on the drop is a calming movement, which adds to a social understanding and gives a feeling of connectedness to other players as the movements of the climbers in the big cloud above are replicated into the drops.
Feels like skywalk
The outlook bridge creates a thrilling destination: thanks to the transparency the feeling of height is unique. This trains the sense of space and invites children to overcome fears and gain self-confidence.
Big climbing universe
The huge net trains important motor skills such as proprioception, spatial awareness and cross-body coordination. These skills are fundamental for risk assessment when for instance judging and navigating traffic securely. All major muscle groups are trained thoroughly when the child climbs the big meshes, holding on tight.
Fun with friends
The bouncy membrane meeting points are interconnected with the nets and make the children feel their own and all their friends’ movements, adding to social-emotional skills such as considering others.
Sounds like rain
The rain sound maker adds an auditive element to climbing.
