A circular playground for fun & play
Pipe-Park is a very eye-catching circular hub fully equipped for fun & play. It comes fully equipped for night mode, with spotlights at the main gates and Flex LED lighting embedded on the pipe, enabling safe night play.
It occupies a surface of 167,4 m2 in a perfectly circular footprint of diameter 14,6 meters.
It has been designed based upon our own internal research on Kids Play Routes. As a result of this research, we have developed in this product a playful perimetral course of challenging activities that kids should follow and overcome successfully. Along the pipe they encounter play activities with different levels of complexity according to different age groups, which, as evidenced by our research on learning through play, help kids developing several motoric and cognitive skills.
The elevated pipe virtually encloses the playful area, concentrating all the fun activities within the circle for safe play. All the activities located under the pipe are both, physical & cognitive challenges to stimulate kids’ body & brain through play. Three main gates define the accesses to the inner space and also the alternative starting points of the Play Route along the perimeter.
Among all the play features, there are specific ones for “the explorers”, little kids from 3 to 6 years old, such as a Ring-toss game, a small slide, a musical instrument and painted graphics on the floor to follow.
Then, there are also specific play features for “the kings of the world”, kids from 6 to 10 years old, such as crossing tunnels, climbing structures, or interactive games like a tic-tac-toe or painted games on the floor.
And last but not least, play features for “the cool guys”, kids from 10 to 14 years old, such as swings, board games, jumping objects, climbing structures or interactive turning balls.
The structure is a steel pipe from where all features are hanging. The floor is all covered with different colours of EPDM and patterns are painted on top of it with acid paint. Some of the features and equipment on top are done with fiberglass. The Pipepark reaches a maximum height of 4500 mm.
Alternative color option: Pink Day!
