Henry Rolland Park, Canberra, Australia
In the centre of Canberra, a new KOMPAN outdoor gym in Henry Rolland Park is considered a city attraction. The combination of high tech, easy-to-use equipment and great location overlooking Lake Burley Griffen has established the fitness site as a popular spot to get trim and fit.
Central Park, Prague, Czech Republic
The owl has landed. In Prague, one of Europe’s most cultured cities, the first of a new generation of playgrounds has been placed in Central Park. According to the park users, the newest addition to the park has soul and is so spectacular that it makes the park special. The Robinia Owl has quickly become a huge part of the park; it belongs there, and feels like it has always been there.
Voss Activity Park, Norway
Outdoor fitness with a fantastic view!
This activity park close to Vangsvatnet in Voss, Norway has quickly become the community’s preferred workout place and the heart of the town. The activity park is so well equipped that during Spring and Summer, the park is the go-to location for boot camp classes from the local fitness centre.
Withrow Park, Toronto, Canada
Withrow Park in Toronto, Canada proves that cooperation between KOMPAN, landscape architects, and municipalities results in great projects that make communities happier and healthier. It was a collaboration that was strengthened by considering the wants of the children themselves. The result? A revitalised park full of adventurous and innovative play; the perfect way to celebrate the start of Withrow Park’s second century.
Covington City, Indiana, USA
When asked to draw their dream playground, the children of Covington put a castle at the top of their fun list. With a little help from KOMPAN's Robinia range, their wish was granted.
Lincoln Park, Boston, USA
Boston, Massachusetts wanted to make sure that all residents lived a maximum of 10-minutes' walk away from their nearest recreational area. This goal has been achieved with the installation of Lincoln Park. Located in Somerville, this exciting and colourful playground offers locals respite from the surrounding urbanised environment. The densely populated area has limited space for outside activities, so creative solutions were needed to create a space where residents of all age groups could come together as a community.
Active City Centre in Grindsted, Denmark
The municipality of Billund, Denmark wanted to breathe new life into the city centre by installing an attractive outdoor play area. The ambition was to increase footfall and extend the length of visitors' trips to the city, with hopes to bring in more custom for local businesses.
Ramsden Park, Toronto, Canada
The landscape architect behind the new playground in Ramsden Park, Toronto, had a vision: to create something new and exciting whilst also incorporating the city’s heritage. The new playground uses yellow colours and themes from Toronto’s history of brick, and has maintained several of the timeless play items from their old KOMPAN playground, like the iconic Crazy Hen. After years of playful enjoyment in its former location, the first of the revolutionary springers is still in great shape and has become part of the new playground.
