Playground Report

Ball games in public spaces – from the “football cage” to multi-functional playing areas

A ball and some space – these are the basic ingredients for play, fun and exercise. It sounds so simple, yet the spatial and creative implementation in the public spaces of a densely populated city is so complex.

Minigolf on the multi-storey car park

In the domain of town planning parks, play areas and public places have a large role to play, but there is not always enough space available to accommodate them. This is why in Franconian Zirndorf, the operator of a local leisure park has allowed a minigolf course with a green adventure landscape and play areas made from artificial turf to be created on the roof of the respective multi-storey car park.

Desert Playground at the Erratic Block Park

Lusatia is a region rich in contrast, which stretches from the south-eastern part of Brandenburg to the east of Saxony: besides nature reserves, there are huge abandoned quarries, which are transformed into new spaces to explore and experience nature within the framework of one of the largest-scale renaturalization processes in Europe. Successful example: the Nochten Erratic Block Park on the site of the former Nochten open-cast mine not far from the Saxon town of Bautzen.

Exercise is the key to healthy growth

Children have a natural need for movement - right from the moment they are born. Their movements allow them to experience and understand their environment. Cognition, emotion and motor activity are closed linked to each other, which means that movement in the sense of the actual activity of moving is much more than just a change in position of the body and is of great significance for the overall personal development of a child.

Grün-Weiß Mildenau Gymnastics and Sports Club Banks on Solar Energy

This is a win-win situation for both the sports club and the environment. The money saved will be entirely invested in sports.
A major issue of the project undertaken by the Grün-Weiß Mildenau gymnastics and sports club (TSV) is to familiarize many fellow citizens with the ease of installation and efficiency of solar thermal systems as well as to encourage them to go and get systems of their own.
