Bringing the community together

Bringing the community together

A small municipality wanted to attract everyone in the community. Together with KOMPAN, they built a playground that did just that. The playground is a wonderful gathering point for the community and the surrounding municipalities. 

The playground is a huge success, with its wide range of play equipment attracting everyone from toddlers to teenagers. The park is rarely empty, always buzzing with children’s laughter or adults working out. No matter what you will always find somebody enjoying themselves.

For bigger children, the giant spacenet, the BLOQX, and the agility track invite for hours of climbing and physical play. Climbing does not only challenge physique, but the wobbly net also stimulates the child’s ABC = agility, balance, and coordination. The challenge in reaching the top in multiple ways or compete on who succeeds the track first is a great way for bigger children to feel success. 

Smaller children can be seen in the playhouse sliding down the slide again and again for er tummy tickling experience! Sliding is a great way to develop balance and spatial awareness. The swing is always popular and develops motor skills as well as contributes to laughter throughout the playground!

Nearby the playground you will find benches and tables as well as an outdoor fitness area. The adults can relax or work out while always having the children in sight.

People come here from neighbouring municipalities as well. During the summer, people make day trips here to Joroinen just because of our park
