The children have chosen LEDON’s playground

In Vølunden in the Danish city Holbæk, West Zealand’s public housing association has built new family homes, which are being completed by a nice new playground. The children have been involved in the decision making and have chosen a Pirates/Castle playground. Mette Engel, who is project manager for Vølunden, adds that the playground has been chosen by the housing association's children as part of resident democracy:

We let them choose between three different playgrounds. This makes them feel a sense of ownership, which will result in them taking better care of the playground. I get many positive responses from there, and a little girl already said at the inauguration: ‘I love my playground’.

Mette Engel, Project manager

Central to the playground is the big pirate bow Sixtus, which is heading towards the seven seas. The children can live out their pirate dreams when they hoist the anchor, move the telescope or crawl into the secret cargo room.

In the playtower Balin the little pirates can keep a lookout through the colourful windows or they can take a trip down the slide. It is only the imagination that sets the limit to the games.

Mette Engel has been very satisfied with LEDON's playground and the collaboration throughout, and she says in this connection:

Børnene i boligforeningen står og skal stemme om, hvilken legeplads de vil have.

LEDON has been very professionnel right from the beginning. They have given us much information along the way – an example being when the local authority gave us trouble with the building permit. They make a nice product with harmonic colours that encourages play. At our inauguration of the playground they even offered to send balloons and sweets.
