Proludic’s innovation and creativity has once again been demonstrated in this playground that opened in June 2017 in Riga, the capital of Latvia. The playground is inspired by the history and architecture of the city, and includes play areas for both younger and older children, with a variety of inclusive play equipment provided so that all children can play together.
This play area is divided into two: an area for 2-6 year-olds, and an area for 7-14 year-olds. The two playgrounds are connected by a walkway symbolising the crossing of the Daugaba river on the Vanšu bridge.
Play area for children aged 7-14
Within this playground, nature blends harmoniously with modernity. The colours and materials are a reference to the Latvian nature and the modern city of Riga. The installations are deliberately unstructured and are inspired by the contemporary architecture.
The very high climbing structures include the impressive 8m-high Rainforest Tower, while the addition of structures such as Skysurf, Aeroskate, Rodeoboard and Roll-Up, ensure a dynamic and challenging play environment for this older age group.
Play area for children aged 2-6
This playground is a modern representation of Riga’s buildings and its fortifications. The play area offers a number of platforms at different heights, culminating in the imposing, 6m-high castle. The shape of the archways, roofs and windows, together with the colours used, are inspired by the traditional architecture of the city. The cut-out aluminium panels, the brushed stainless steel and the play panels add a modern touch to the area.
An elevated walkway connects the fortified city and the opposite riverbank (where the older children's play area is located), and offers unique climbing and innovative sliding activities. More adventurous children can cross the river by using the Double Cableway.
Additional play equipment for all ages and abilities
The project also features other play equipment for all ages and abilities, including Proludic’s All-Inclusive Boat, the award-winning Inclusive Truck, the Inclusive Diabolo Multi-Play, the Tiboo Multi-Play for toddlers, a Pyramid Net, multiple swings, rotating equipment, springers and a table tennis table.
