When the housing association Stadtbau Waldkraiburg in the Bavarian town of Waldkraiburg was to design their outdoor areas, and create a playground at the residential complex, they agreed early on that a playground should be more than just a playground. It should be a place where everyone could come together, regardless of their ability. Working with KOMPAN, the housing association developed a solution that would provide space for socialising with engaging activities for all ages on durable, vandal resistant playground equipment. Made from a combination of HDPE plates and galvanised steel, the playground equipment not only looks great, but also helps to keep costs down, including the cost of maintenance.
Now that the playground is up and running,Thomas Irgmeier of Waldkraiburg’s municipal building authority is happy that the solution has lived up to expectations.
“We are very satisfied with KOMPAN’s solution, and it is very rewarding to see children and older people alike spending their leisure time at the playground,” he says.

Working closely with KOMPAN, the association developed a solution that would be fun and enriching for all the different age groups served by the play area.
