The success of a play area is influenced by how it enhances and blends into the environment.
The local surroundings, the chosen products (comfort, safety and long service life) and the target market (age of the users, presence of accompanying adults and accessibility for the disabled) are just some of the factors that must be taken into account when designing a playground or sports area.
