New activity area to celebrate 150 year-old park

What better way to celebrate a 150th birthday, than with an extraordinary play area for the whole community. Finsbury Park in London wanted to create a play area for the community's older children, opening on the park's 150th birthday. As the centrepiece feature, the Super Frisbee placed in the middle of the large play area is UK’s first of its kind. It has been extremely popular and within two minutes of the opening ceremony, there was a child on every horizontal surface of the playground – and it hasn't been empty since. Realizing that they haven’t been kids for a long time, the Haringey Council decided to consult with local school children to accommodate their play wishes for the new play area. So, they invited several of UK’s leading play companies to design activity areas, based on their feedback. As the winner, KOMPAN designed a unique playground meeting all the aspirations of the local children.

As soon as I snipped the ribbon, they just bombarded me, shoved me out of the way, and raced to come in... and since then, it has never been empty!

Play features to WOW older kids!

With its majestic expression and endless climbing opportunities, the Super Frisbee will immediately WOW children as well as parents. The big meshes allow for climbing, crawling, and training spatial perception. Swinging on the Cocowave Pendulum Swing encourages social interaction in the form of negotiation and cooperation, which are important social skills for children to learn. Children train their muscle strength and sense of balance, while bone density is built when jumping off the swing. Besides training children’s spatial awareness, the Large Cableway allows children to practice important social-emotional skills like compromise and turn-taking.

Joy of movement: motor skills, muscle, cardio and bone density
Joy of being together: teamwork, tolerance and sense of belonging
Joy of learning: curiosity, understanding of causal relationships and knowledge of the world
