The Carabela Fantasma (Phantom Caravel) pirate ship and the La Fortaleza (The Fortress) castle, inspired by the tenth century Cártama fortress, are the two giants that stand out in the Parque el Castillo (Castle Park), a 1,300 m2 outdoor themed children’s playground located in the municipality of Cártama, Malaga. This play area also features several pieces of children’s inclusive play equipment for children with disabilities, a calisthenics area, and an area with gym apparatus.
This project featuring large themed multi-play structures was received with great pleasure and enthusiasm by the Industrias Agapito team, involving all departments for several weeks, particularly many of the production staff and the technical office. Both large-scale children’s multi-play structures are of 100% Spanish design and manufacture, being designed and manufactured entirely in our facilities in Zaragoza.
Themed children’s playground
The gigantic La Fortaleza children’s castle is made up of two hexagonal towers more than 7 meters tall, with two spiral tube slides, a multitude of play equipment such as climbing walls, suspension bridges, fireman’s poles, crawling tunnels, and portholes. This sizeable themed multi-play structure is able to amuse more than 50 users in a safe environment, certified under European standard EN1176.
The Phamton Caravel pirate ship pirate ship has a capacity for 100 crew and is adapted for children with disabilities. It competes spectacularly with its neighbor the castle, due to it being 12 meters in length and more than 3 meters wide. This large-scale pirate-themed ship is equipped with polyethylene slides and 32 additional pieces of play apparatus, most of which are interactive.
In the children’s play area, several pieces of inclusive children’s play equipment for children with different abilities have been installed, such as the adapted Fire Truck multi-play structure, or the inclusive swings with a harness seat and a nest seat.
The public playground is fully equipped with an early stimulation area devoted to younger children, aged 0–3 years, where they can develop their basic social and psychomotor skills while playing.
To finish it off, a 20-meter zip line in the shape of a grasshopper has been installed:
Calisthenics Zone and Outdoor Gym
A calisthenics area has been installed next to the children’s playgrounds for young people to perform workout routines on the parallel bars of varying heights, and in the sets of calisthenics equipment formed of horizontal ladders, a brachiation ladder, wall bars, and vertical bars.
Outdoor gym apparatus can be found next to the calisthenics area, a complete set of gym equipment consisting of an elliptical cross-trainer, a sky walker station, a seated bike, a swinger station, a rowing machine and lat pull station, a seated chest press, a set of tai chi spinners, a leg curl and extension station and a sit up bench.
