Sejlklubben Mou Bro, Storvorde

A pirate playground on grass

Mou Bro Sailing Club near Aalborg in northern Jutland has been wanting a playground for a long time. The club wanted a playground where young children could play safely, and at the same time the solution needed to be budget-friendly and require a minimum of excavation.

The choice therefore fell on play equipment approved for installation on grass as well as reuse of the existing safety surfaces. In this way, the sailing club was able to save a lot of money on safety surfaces and contractors. According to Mou Bro Sailing club, children are thrilled with the playground, and the Sixtus bow section is particularly popular with all the playground’s captains and sailors who love to look out over the water.

The ship’s bow and the two springers – the shark and the sea lion – support the children’s role-play. In role-play, children develop their social skills and learn to set boundaries and to say no, etc.Therefore, role-play is very important for children’s development, and is a key focus area when developing our play equipment.

Hals harbour

A large pirate ship in its element

Hals Boat Club in northern Jutland was very keen to have a playground at the harbour where children could play being captain of their own ship. Therefore, and much to the children’s delight, the board chose play equipment from the LEDON Pirates series, which includes the pirate ship Victoria.

The harbour has not previously had a playground and, together with local shops and restaurants, the pirate ship has created an oasis for the whole family. The Municipality of Aalborg demanded that it had to be possible to move the pirate ship. The ship has therefore been installed using concrete brackets for easy relocation.

In addition to all its moving parts, such as a ship’s wheel, compass, anchor and telescope, the ship also has a wobbly plank for audacious pirates or seamen. A treasure map and diamonds can be found in the captain’s cabin as well as the ship’s dungeon. From the upper deck, any captain can whizz down the ship’s slide.

The striking blue rubber surfacing beautifully frames the playground and inspires water-themed play. At the same time, the coloured, impact-resistant polycarbonate windows add another dimension when the panes are lit up in bright sunshine.

The play system is specially designed with a plank. The standard version is shown in the product overview.
