Gredstedbro Borgerforening

Great cooperation, great playground, great joy!

The wide range of play equipment ensures that children of all ages enjoy the playground.

Valmuemarken in Gredstedbro south of Esbjerg now has a big new playground which is bursting with fun play equipment. The playground came into being through a collaboration between the civic association Gredstedbro Borgerforening, the Municipality of Esbjerg and a group of local residents.

There was a desire that the playground should be able to accommodate multiple age groups, so that as many children as possible could enjoy it. It was realised by choosing a wide selection of play equipment from the LEDON Explore series. With springers, swings, playhouses, a climbing frame and play systems, there is no doubt that the playground has everything that children young and old could want.

The opening of the new playground was celebrated on a sunny day in summer 2021 and was attended by many children and adults. The children tried out all the new play equipment, which immediately brought forth the smiles. The playground has quickly become a place for the locals to gather, and is also popular with childminders and children in the area.

Stagebjergparken, Almind

A new playground slowly takes shape

The Stagebjergparken homeowners’ association wanted to renew their playground, but ideally it had to happen over a period of time. Therefore, they have gradually replaced various pieces of play equipment and adapted the playground to their existing play area.

First, the homeowners’ association chose the ship’s bow section Sixtus, which is part of our LEDON Pirates series. They liked the fact that it had enough space for several children to play at the same time, and that it encourages cooperative play and role-playing. This was exactly what was needed to enhance the play value of the playground.

Next, it was decided to add equipment that would enable children to test their climbing skills. With one of our large play systems from LEDON Basic, fun climbing activities were guaranteed, with challenges even for older children. The large play system is ideal for developing children’s physical and gross motor skills.

The playground has slowly taken shape, and more play activities have been added for the children. Both the LEDON Basic and LEDON Pirates universes can easily be expanded over a period of time. Lots of extra elements can be added should the homeowners’ association want to develop the playground further in future.

Uglekær, Aabenraa

Three new playgrounds for local children

In Aabenraa in southern Denmark, we have collaborated extensively with the housing association Kolstrup Boligforening, which had three new playgrounds installed in 2021. The projects at Præsteskoven, Frueløkke and Uglekær all had to meet the housing association’s criteria – the playgrounds had to be durable and safe, and they wanted simple and attractive solutions.

The playgrounds that we have delivered meet all these requirements, as we only supply play equipment which is made of durable, low-maintenance materials that can withstand the wind and weather. Likewise, all our equipment is safety-certified according to the European standard EN 1176. In this way, we ensure the safety and durability of our playgrounds.

In terms of arriving at simple and well-designed solutions, we have made the most of the available areas with play equipment from our LEDON Explore series. The series targets a wide age group, and is designed in natural and neutral colours. As the play equipment has been developed in collaboration with children, the play value is second to none, as both its thematic appearance and the play activities spark children’s imagination.

Carsten Nielsen, property inspector at the housing association Kolstrup Boligforening, is very happy with his collaboration with LEDON, and says:

LEDON was very quick to respond when I contacted the company, and soon took charge of the task in hand. There is no doubt that LEDON’s playground equipment is a good product and long-lasting, and it also comes in many different colours that appeal to a wide age group. The thinking behind the choice of colours etc., in which the children are involved, is very appealing.

AAB Vejle

Head off to sea on the large pirate ship Victoria

The housing association AAB Vejle wanted to update one of their playgrounds. The old playground, which consisted of a climbing tower and slide, needed renewing. The board wanted the new playground to encourage more role-play and to cater for the needs of younger children.

Based on our various suggestions, the board chose the large pirate ship Victoria from our LEDON Pirates theme world. The ship has a wealth of play activities, and is perfect for engaging children of all ages. At ground level it has moving parts and thematic elements such as a treasure chest, telescope, compass, anchor etc.These all encourage cooperative play and role-play as children immerse themselves in the pirate universe. For older children wanting to challenge their physical abilities, there is the large climbing net on the aft deck. This can be used to access the top of the ship, from where the children can slide down.

The pirate ship from LEDON Pirates fulfilled all the housing association’s wishes, and local children now have a play system with lots of activities and great play value. The impressive ship is also eye-catching, and attracts a lot of children as a result.

Vindinggård homeowners’ association, Vejle

No rot or decay with a low-maintenance play system

The homeowners’ association Vindinggård needed to replace its old wooden play system, and they were keen for their new system to require only a bare minimum of maintenance.

All our play equipment is made from polyethylene, a low-maintenance and recyclable material. It is very durable and can withstand fluctuating temperatures as well as all kinds of weather. We offer a life-time warranty on our polyethylene, because we know from experience that it lasts. Therefore, it was also the right choice for Vindinggård homeowners’ association. Read more about the many advantages of low-maintenance materials under quality materials.

The homeowners’ association’s new play system is Brody from our LEDON Basic series. For this series, we have designed high-quality play equipment which is attractively priced thanks to our optimised internal processes and material consumption. The play value is still second to none, and children will therefore enjoy spending many hours on Brody.

Brombærvænget, Kolding

Play equipment that can be adapted to any area

The homeowners’ association Blaabærvej wanted to add play value to their communal green area, which everyone in the neighbourhood enjoys using. The size of the area to some extent determined which play equipment to have in the playground. The lawned area already had a football pitch on one side, so the new equipment had to fit into an oblong area on the other.

The choice therefore fell on our straight obstacle course from LEDON Basic, which was a perfect fit for the available space. Also, the balance equipment only requires grass as a safety surface, and the obstacle course could therefore be mounted directly on the grass. As could the Butterfly seesaw, which has also been beautifully integrated into the playground.

The swings and somersault bar, which are sure hits with children, complete the area. The wide range of play equipment ensures that the playground is inviting and fun for different age groups. All the local children can therefore have fun in the challenging and entertaining playground.

Børnehuset Fladhøj, Rødekro

Playground welcomed by both children and childcare professionals

At Børnehuset Fladhøj, an integrated day care institution and kindergarten in southern Denmark, the children and childcare professionals have been given new play equipment for the outdoor playground. It comprises the play environment Filippa and the Brum the Bee crawling bridge from our MiniPlay series, which is particularly suitable for institutions.

MiniPlay has been developed in collaboration with children and childcare professionals, and focuses on giving the youngest children a good start early in life by developing their motor skills. The childcare professionals at Børnehuset Fladhøj are particularly pleased with the floor height of the play system, which has been designed so that the adults do not have to adopt unergonomic positions when helping children to play. The staff are therefore able to follow the children around the entire play system without having to bend down.

The Filippa play system features many colours, moving parts and play activities that catch the children’s attention and encourage them to use their fine motor skills and practise their language skills. The childcare professionals at Fladhøj are also pleased that the children’s gross motor skills are challenged as they move from one level to another. The gentle slope helps children to train their balance and ability to walk.

Brum the Bee is designed to help the very youngest. It enables children to safely practise crawling, walking and standing, as they can hold onto several handles and stand firmly on the non-slip surface. At Børnehuset Fladhøj, Brum was a particularly appropriate choice. They have a group called ‘Brumbasserne’, so Brum was sure to feel completely at home with the children there.

Skriverløkken, Sønderborg

One playground – two series: The best of two worlds

In Sønderborg in southern Denmark, the housing association B42 has a big new playground that combines our two theme worlds LEDON Explore and LEDON Pirates. With many different pieces of play equipment, the playground is designed for children of all ages.

Our theme worlds represent different universes, but they can easily be combined and mixed. In this way, the children can choose to play on their own or engage in cooperative play that draws on all the different thematic elements.

Explore and Pirates are some of our most imaginative series. In particular, they encourage role-play and social interaction, which helps to develop children’s cognitive abilities. At the same time, the series have a wide selection of play equipment, which makes it easy to put together a complete playground with high play value.

Søren Steen Kindberg, assistant supervisor at the housing association, is delighted with the result, and says:

Our collaboration with LEDON has been – and still is – absolutely fantastic. We have been met with a high degree of professionalism as well as a friendly and welcoming service from start to finish. We wanted products from two different LEDON product groups, and together we designed the playground so that it suits the area perfectly. I can only pass on my warmest recommendations, and suggest that anyone wanting a new playground should contact LEDON.
