Challenge

Requirements

The playground in St Patrick's Park is located in the heart of old Dublin adjacent to St. Patrick's Cathedral, Christchurch and Dublin Castle. Therefore it is proposed to represent old Viking Dublin in the small playground by using one large play unit, perhaps a Viking ship, with a number of smaller units which will combine to provide excellent play value to this confined playground located in a very busy historic park.

Challange

To design a creative and individual playground that would reflect the historic area and would be exciting enough to hold a childs attention within the extremely restricted space available.

Solution

We designed bespoke elements using the viking theme, and took it one step further by making it a viking shipwreck. By doing this we allowed ourselves to open up the area more and to increase the play value through linking random elements. The main structure was to be the viking ships bow thrust in the air that the children could climb up, in and around along with slide.

Outcome

Initaial reports have been hugely positive, with increasing amounts of local parents bringing their children to the park.
