River Grove Community Centre, Canada

New playground attracts visitors from afar 

New playground attracts visitors from afar 

A playground is often a place you only visit if you live in the vicinity of it. But River Grove Community Centre has changed that image, and families are driving in from the surrounding area to spend a day at the new, all-ages playground.  

The Community Centre was very specific on what they wanted in the new playground. It had to offer something for every age group, it had to be inclusive, and it had to challenge the children cognitively, creatively, and physically. In collaboration with KOMPAN, all their needs were met, and a playground for both toddlers, teens, and tweens was built offering a thrilling experience for all. 

 

A playground for everyone

A playground for everyone

The playground invites all children to play, by offering a great variety of challenging and thrilling features for children of all ages and abilities. The BLOQX encourages teens to climb, and the many possibilities for different climbing paths improve their strength, cross-body coordination, and spatial awareness. 


The Double Towers has auditive and tactile play-panels at ground level, which invite smaller children to explore while stimulating their logical thinking and creativity by encouraging them to role-play which trains language and negotiation skills. The two towers are connected by a bridge, which is challenging for bravehearts who will improve their self-awareness and confidence. 
A truly inclusive playground for everyone!
