Maurik Island Recreation Park, Maurik

Cases

Recreation park up-to-date once more. Fun voyage of discovery along the dike and water meadows.

Playing is about discovery, and what is more enjoyable than adventures on the water? For a little while now at the Maurik Island Recreation Park, children have been able to embark on a fun voyage of discovery in the heart of the Betuwe. 16 individual items of play equipment mark the route which children at play follow along the dike and in the water meadows. But thanks to the new play route, the campsite is now really up to date and very interesting to its most important target group: families with children of all ages. KOMPAN supplies the equipment, and the park managers assemble and install them. Co-owner Lennard Kempers explains, "we know that KOMPAN will supply quality products that require little in the way of maintenance."

The Maurik Island Recreation Park lies in the heart of the Betuwe, with its meandering dikes, picturesque villages and blooming orchards. It is delightful to cycle and walk in this "Fruit garden of the Netherlands". Maurik itself is a peaceful village on the Dutch Rhine that is encircled by historic towns and characteristic villages such as Wijk bij Duurstede, Tiel and Amerongen. The campsite has all the facilities needed for a luxurious camping holiday. Children never get bored of the tropically laid-out indoor play paradise and the "play cutter".

 

Safe playtime

There are also several items of play equipment close to the camping spots themselves that are aimed specifically at the main target group: children aged 3 to 8. Some of these are situated between the caravans and bungalows. "We place families with small children who can't yet visit the large play areas on their own on these fields", says Mr Kempers, "so that the parents of younger children can keep an eye on them." A central play area on its own doesn't work, so that's why we opted to install new, smaller items of equipment in 16 locations across the campsite.

They needed to be replaced - on one hand because the equipment at the time was around ten years old and on the other, because children nowadays demand more from play equipment. Maurik Island recognises the importance of play facilities that are completely up-to-date, together with the need to have play areas for different age groups. Mr Kempers continues: "Here you can find equipment where they can run around under the watchful gaze of their parents. And it's also good for the parents because they can sit and chat on the terrace whilst keeping an eye on their little ones. It makes for a carefree holiday for the whole family."

 

Low maintenance

The family business did not rush into the decision about new play areas and equipment. Mr Kempers requested several proposals but ultimately opted for KOMPAN.
