New adventure playground on the way in Ossendrecht
In April, Speelmaatje is installing an original play area at Athena Ossendrecht. The Dutch family business is based in Gelderland. The employees invent, design and build play equipment in-house for schools, municipalities, daycare centers and recreational parks such as the Lilse Bergen, Gaia Zoo and soon for Athena.
A natural environment stimulates children's imagination and provides building blocks for healthy outdoor play. Playing in and with nature. In this way children lay the foundation for a healthy physical and mental development. Speelmaatje stimulates this through thoughtful design and by building safe, green and adventurous playgrounds.
Playmate uses timeless childhood fun as inspiration for her creations. Climbing a tree, building a hut, bicycle racing on wasteland, building a dam in a stream, walking across a fallen tree or just chatting with the girlfriends and friends.
Speelmaatje processes robust robinia into play facilities. This durable hardwood species with its characteristic whimsical shapes lends itself ideally to inviting play objects that fit into a natural environment.
Extra nice: the wood comes from plantation forests where there is a replanting obligation.
At our facility in Ossendrecht there will be a spectacular course where children can climb, hang, swing and balance. The high ropes, beams and platforms are connected by running logs to a big, sturdy play tower. The slide goes down the hill again. The extra large family swing can be enjoyed by six at a time. In addition to the fun equipment, the bushes, trees and hills are at least as important for the play fun.
To be tested out starting May 1. For those who dare!
