The playground in Bispeparken, Copenhagen consists of a giant robot monster chained to the ground with huge crates scattered around him. In the design process - we called on the creative insight of the real play experts - the children of the area, who we held a workshop with. They came up with the fun concept of a huge monster as the centrepiece of the playground. The 10-meter-long monster is composed of many different elements with different play possibilities. The upper torso and the head of the monster act as a playhouse and observation point. To get to the top platform, at a height of approximately 3 meters, the children must climb up assisted by climbing grips on the sides of the monster, balance on beams that make up the monster’s arm or climb up the tube slide that serves as the other arm. A challenging and fun playground for all ages!

MONSTRUM designed the playground, while other parts of the area were designed by the consulting company, Thing & Brandt landscape.
