Playground to tell the story of Paris

Playground to tell the story of Paris

As the Latin Quarter is a historic district of Paris, the city is particularly proud of the local and idyllic park with a 2000-year-old Roman arena. To provide families with a place to rest in this unique location, the city of Paris wanted to build a play area themed to respect and enhance the ancient architectural surroundings.

The result is a playground whose thematic design blends in perfectly with its surroundings. The natural colours and the unique play elements inspire children to immerse themselves in ancient Roman times. It is the ideal place for families to play and enjoy the historical flair.

The playground offers play value for children of all ages. Exiting for the preschoolers is the play tower with numerous elements to explore. On the ground level play, spaces with play panels invite children to learn cause-and-effect understanding and to create a feeling for sounds with the music panel. Mobility is required when crossing or standing on the U net. A thrilling feeling is created when the children use the slide or the fireman's pole to exit the elevated level. 

Older children love the spider net where they can climb, swing, slid, bounce and balance. The net has space for lots of children, which encourages social play and, therefore, is the perfect spot to make friends. A further climbing challenge offers the climbing rock. Through the varied grip and panel positions, muscle strength and cross-body coordination are developed. It's guaranteed not to be boring on this playground. 







The richness of KOMPAN's product range makes it possible to choose playgrounds according to the designers' theme.
