A world of wonder & thrilling climbing

Touching, feeling, seeing. The Sensory Dome is a wonderous sensory playscape that combines thrilling climbing with numerous sensory play explorations. It is designed to allow children to genuinely play together across all levels and abilities.

Thrilling climbing & chilling meeting

The huge nets are suspended vertically and horizontally to cater for climbs that are thrilling and meeting points for chilling. The age-appropriate training of muscles and motor skills when crawling, climbing and navigating through the net-scapes of the Sensory Dome provides children with important play benefits such as strength, stability and confidence in moving.

On the very top of the Dome, a grassy-surface meeting point offers a bouncy, fun-to-touch space to rest. On ground level, varied nets sway when children climb above, creating playful movement and a sense of unity in players. The transparency of the Sensory Dome makes it a play unit for intense cooperation, consideration and communication across levels and activities. On ground level, every activity is accessible and makes sense for all abilities

Thanks to their differently colored sides, the vertically suspended rollers allow children to create their own patterns and signals which encourage creativity.

Designed to support inclusiveness

The Sensory Dome is meticulously designed to promote play for all abilities. The inside of the net structure is designed to provide passage for children in wheelchairs or children who need support from a caregiver with pathways and extra large zones to turn a wheelchair around.

On ground level, varied nets sway when children climb above, creating playful movement and a sense of unity in players. The transparency of the Sensory Dome makes it a play unit for intense cooperation, consideration and communication across levels and activities. On ground level, every activity is accessible and makes sense for all abilities.

The Sensory Dome features a rich variety of novel play activities that intrigue, retain and develop children of all abilities in play. This makes the Sensory Dome a uniquely intense play space to wonder, feel, move and make friends.
