Proludic adopted a nautical-themed design for the playground upgrade at VR Michael Reserve. Suitable for children from 3 years old, the play equipment encourages role play and imaginative play opportunities as many stories can be created around the theme of water.
The main feature of the playground at VR Michael Reserve is Keo the Shipwreck (J2750-M) from Proludic’s Aquatica range. The themed play equipment stimulates group imaginative play and story telling where children set sail for a world of adventures: crossing stormy seas, discovering a desert island, or simply dropping the anchor to go fishing with friends… many stories can be created!
Each of the structures is equipped with numerous play elements, designed to test children’s motor and fine motor skills: the nets and ladders provide a challenge to get to the upper deck or climb up the mast. Then there’s the question of who takes the helm, who scans the horizon or who jumps on the slide to set off on a new adventure.
Play elements accessible at ground level include a Tubophone (Talk Tubes) and benches that encourage social interaction and communication between children. The equipment provides limitless opportunities for group or quiet play within the play area.
Other play equipment provided by Proludic includes Inclusive Trampolines (R34-ETP-010) and the Inclusive Wok carousel (J2406) for children from 3 years old and the Rodeoboard (J3501) for older children. These items are a great addition for dynamic and fun play experiences!
All the materials used, including the compact composite panels of Keo the Shipwreck, ensure a robust, durable and sustainable equipment solution for the Australian environment.
