Creating Happier & Healthier Communities

KOMPAN's ambition is to provide communities and councils with durable and low-maintenance outdoor activity areas that add hours of fun, activity through play and fitness and last but definitely not least - a strong sense of community and pride for people of all ages and abilities.

We have worked with hundreds of community groups throughout Ireland creating outdoor spaces that meet their needs.

Outdoor gym equipment for parks

An outdoor fitness site with the right type of equipment offers a free workout space for your community. It's a place to socialise and have fun. Paired with a playground, parents can workout while their children play on the playground.

Building an outdoor fitness site for your community can be challenging with the various outdoor gym equipment available. Our fitness experts are ready to guide and help you find the perfect outdoor gym.

Whether you want a callisthenics gym, an obstacle course around your park, or an outdoor gym focusing on accessibility, you will find inspiration in the fitness sites below.

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.

Outdoor fitness with a fantastic view!

Customer Case

Withrow Park, Toronto, Canada

Withrow Park in Toronto, Canada proves that cooperation between KOMPAN and landscape architects and municipalities results in great projects that make communities happier and healthier. It was a cooperation that was strengthened by adding the wishes of the children themselves. The result, a revitalized park full of adventurous and innovative play, was the perfect way to start Withrow Park’s second century.

Customer case

Covington City, Indiana, USA

The Robinia castle, the center-piece in the park, was popular before it was even built. When asked to draw their dream playground, the kids of Covington, put a castle at the top of their fun list. So they got one.

Customer case

Lincoln Park, Boston, USA

With Lincoln Park, Boston has finally reached its goal of a maximum distance of a 10-minute walk to the nearest recreational area, and offers the citizens of Somerville respite from the city environment. The densely populated area has limited space for outside activities, so creative solutions were needed to create a place where residents of all age groups are offered the opportunity to socialize, become engaged and be challenged.

Customer case

Ramsden Park, Toronto, Canada

The landscape architect behind the new playground in Ramsden Park, Toronto, had a vision to create something new and exciting, but through including something old. By old, she meant incorporating both the city’s heritage and some time-tested favourites from the existing KOMPAN playground. The new playground uses yellow colours and themes from Toronto’s history of brick, and has maintained several of the timeless play items from the old playground, like the iconic Crazy Hen. After giving years of pleasure in its former location, the first of the revolutionary springers is still in great shape and has become part of the new playground.
