Oberhausen, Gartenstraße

Natural wooden play and climbing facility

The linear design and bright and cheerful colours of this play and climbing facility on Gartenstraße in Oberhausen, immediately draws everyone’s attention. The special feature of this system is that it is made entirely from core-separated oak squared timbers and thus has a natural feel.

This play facility, consisting of a rubber bridge and two play houses, is also suitable for very little ones. The first playhouse is accessed via a small ladder. Children can then reach the second play house by balancing on the rubber bridge.

There’s also a toddler slide, sand lift and sand chute.

The large climbing set-up invites children to play. It can be explored via balancing ramps and belts and a wavy balancing pipe. Everyone can choose which route they want to take. The climbing net can be conquered with a little skill or simply used as a spot to rest. Those who get all the way to the end will definitely feel very pleased with themselves.

Swinging with the other person is more fun than having one of you push. The swing has a couple seat, allowing two people to swing at the same time sitting opposite each other. Together, they decide how high they want to go, observe each other’s reactions and communicate with each other.
