Installation of Corkeen system in a city park playground Case Studies

Corkeen as the choice that promotes the value of nature

The landscape architecture firm, Edge, has designed a playground using the Corkeen system in the heart of the city park in Skanör, in the municipality of Vellinge.

This children's playground is located in the city park in Skanör, close to a cluster of pedestrian paths.

The landscape architecture firm, Edge, was chosen by the municipality of Vellinge to develop this project, which had to reflect the community’s two principal goals: to preserve the ecosystem and promote the value of nature.

The Ant in the city park

Edge began by meeting the children living in the community and listened to their thoughts and desires for this project. This inspired creation of the black tree ant as the landmark of the park, a symbol of the surrounding nature and ecosystem of this part of Sweden.

At the same time, the Corkeen system was chosen for the fall surfacing in the playground, since it combines safety, accessibility and sustainability in a single solution.

“Sweden is one of the leading countries in Europe in terms of finding solutions for more environmentally friendly products for playgrounds. The Corkeen system complies with microplastic reduction requirements, which are mandatory in some of Sweden’s municipalities.”
