INSPIRATIONAL PLAYGROUND CONCEPT
The Mountain Trekker
'Besides looking really nice and refreshingly new, the Mountain Trekker can be configured in many different ways, both in terms of size and in terms of play activities ...'
Play Designer, KOMPAN Design Studio
An awesome play trail for any environment
The fact that the activities of the Mountain Trekker are arranged along a long row creates a fun obstacle course of climbing nets, membranes and bridges with the thrilling Cliff Rider in the centre. An enormous amount of play activities are added at ground level with many more fun activities, like the hanging pod, the banister bar, swaying sturdy drops, optic panels, coconut rope, visual plates, EPDM balls, play shells and much more. By adding a safety net on one side this product can also serve as space divider, and you only have to worry about the safety footprint to one side.

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
Jumping over the mountain gorge
The cliff rider is an immensely thrilling attraction that glides children from one platform to the next. The spacious start and ending platforms allow for children to find the courage to try out, and for their friends to encourage and help. This makes it a training platform for not only motor skills, but also of important social-emotional skills.
The hanging pod is a swaying shelter and hugely attractive for children. Additionally they train social-emotional skills such as empathy.
Light and shadows
The optic panels have moiré visual effects when turned and moved. This fosters a sense of wonder that stimulates thinking skills.
The coconut rope with overhead support rope creates a gently swaying ground-level balancing and meeting opportunity.
A bouncing cross-over
The bouncy, open membrane path offers an alternative way across the upper level, training the sense of balance and space.
A cozy moment
The double play shell creates a nice, gently swaying meeting point for a quiet break or a talk with friends. This stimulates social-emotional well-being.
The upper net layer creates a bouncy crawl and walk across the Mountain Trekker, training children’s balance and spatial awareness as they go.
