Pispeparken in Copenhagen, Denmark consists of a giant robot monster chained into the ground with boxes scattered next to him. The design was developed on the basis of a small workshop with the children of the area. They came up with the idea of designing the playground as a monster. The monster is composed of many different elements with different playing options. He is more than 10 meters long from head to toe. The upper torso and the head of the monster act as a playhouse and observation post. To get to the top platform in a height of approximately three meters the children must use climb studs placed on the sides of the monster, balance on beams that make up the monster’s arm, or climb up the pipeslide that serves as the other arm.

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