A playground that turns a shopping centre into a family destination
What better way to make shopping a unique family adventure than with an exciting outdoor playground? That's exactly what the Moisselles-Domont shopping centre near Paris, did. With four and a half million visitors a year they wanted to highlight the experience for customers with children and build a landmark that would entice children as soon as they see it from the parking lot.
Parents and children love the new focal point, as the seven-meter-tall play tower allows children to have fun while parents find it easier to shop. The owners are so pleased with the success and high quality of the playground and have plan further play areas in some of their 25 other shopping centres across Europe.
Play adventure in seven meters height
The highlight of the playground is the seven-meter- tall play tower, where each play cube offers something new to discover. To get from the bottom to the top the children face different challenges such as a climbing net, ropes with discs or a tunnel with a steep climb. These promote physical activity and trains cross-coordination. Climbing is not only fun, but also brings thrills and rewards. The higher the children climb, the better the view which they can enjoy through the bouncy membrane or the bubble window. Getting to the top is only half the thrill, because the only way down is at speed through the tube slide. Designed for every ability and need, play panels on the lower level motivate children to learn through play and offers the perfect opportunity to socialize and make new friends.
It is a real asset to have an outdoor playground, because the children see the playground immediately from the parking lot. It makes them want to come in.
