About the project
The Præstekjær after-school centre has a pleasant playground with space for ball plays and a public playground with swings and slides close by.
The after-school centre wanted a new playground that made better use of the large sandbox and added opportunities for roll play games and water games combined with moon car tracks.
h1.The Castle Town
The Castle Town is designed as a small adventure land where children can hide and play role games. There is basis for a major water fight on hot summer days when the water is on, and snow balls can come flying over the castle wall in the winter. Furthermore, the children often play tag across, through, below and around the castle.
The castle town consists of a big castle in the middle with a town around it and a street twisting itself between. The castle is built on piles and is surrounded by the sandbox acting as the moat. The sandbox stretches all the way below the castle, so it is possible to climb below it and come up via the well in the castle courtyard. The castle consists of three towers and a castle wall.
North of the castle lies the prison and the rest of the town. The prison has a door on one side, and a hole in the wall on the other side facing the neighbouring house. The rest of this part of the town consists of set pieces painted on plywood fixed on the board fence.
Also resting on piles, the road around the castle twists and turns its way through town. The road is broad enough for a moon-car and is fitted with a crash fence at the high levels.
