The Owl

Natural Wood Owl Playground Structure
'The Owl offers 360-degree play for children from the age of 4 and above. From the top platform, the children get to take in the world through the eyes of The Owl and experience a stomach-tickling thrill when sliding down the wide slide together ...'

Developing body, mind and friendships

On The Owl strategically placed climbing grips and nets on the wings and body help challenge children's balance, cross-coordination, and muscle strength. The top platform can also be accessed through a maze of platforms inside the stomach of The Owl. A hammock hidden underneath the tail gives the opportunity for a short, swaying break with friends.

For generations of children, this means endless hours of play.

How can I install a playground like this?

At KOMPAN we turn ideas into reality - all the way from defining the playground concept until the playground is installed.

Building a playground is not child’s play. It is a major construction undertaking. From clearing the area for foundation to finishing the site, it involves heavy equipment, extensive materials, complex products and expert knowledge. All these factors must be precisely coordinated to avoid delays. Our expert teams have done it many times and are happy to take the load off your shoulders!
