KINCSES SZIGET PLAYGROUND

 

The project was initiated in connection with the Metro4 project, due to the need for environmental management around the ventilation facility at Bocskai út. The concept was to create a treasure island-type (Kincses sziget means Treasure Island) atmosphere in the urban jungle. This is achieved by winding beaches, the palm trees, and a lush jungle atmosphere. The sandy play surface is marked by a loose rope fence with wooden posts. The playground offers activities for age groups 1-3 and 4-12. The adventure begins on a wooden crashed plane on the ‘shore’ with camouflage imitating rope-nets to climb, and continues in the “water” with a climbing labyrinth, slides and various other rope-climbing facilities to trigger children’s imagination. The labyrinth enables kids to explore climbing, balancing, suspension, developing physical dexterity, coordination and strength. Children have endless possibilities to test themselves in a safe environment with climbing ramps, metal climbing nets or a spiral stainless steel tube. The sand represents the sea, while the red rubber cover represents the beach. The right side of the bridge has the equipment suitable for ages 1-3, including sandboxes in the shape of starfish, dolphin swings, and a baby slide in the shape of a ship. The beach atmosphere wouldn’t be complete without palm trees we scattered around the site.
