Amersfoort – Amersfoort Zoo

A unique “hanging playground” was opened in the Zoo of Amersfoort in July 1991. The playground includes; slides, jungle bridges, and climbing frames, which are all attached to a wooden dome construction (8 meters high, cross section of 40 meters). Prior to the realization of the play dome, an analysis of the environment (vegetation, soil, etc.) and visual aspects, regarding the view from and towards the dome, was made. Thanks to the open construction of the dome, it was possible to integrate several existing valuable trees.
