Sharing is caring!

High-rise structures are a common sight in Singapore due to our scarce land. So why not have vertical playgrounds in Singapore too? The Wallholla playground is exactly that and ideally suited to fits right in the architectural landscape of our urban backyards.


History of Wallholla Playground

The “Wallholla” playground was first designed in 2005 by Dutch company, Carve. They were given a task to design a new schoolyard area with a list of requirements including a space to accommodate 60 children at a time at a large soccer field for climbing and play activities.

They came up with the idea of a vertical playground where kids could move around and have fun without having too large a footprint.

The Design of Wallholla: For Tight Spaces

With a striking design that makes it a sculptural playground, and perfect for constrained spaces, the Wallholla playground is modular. This means different playset elements can be fitted into each vertical playground.

Play elements include slides, climbing walls, sliding poles, climbing nets and ropes of varying lengths.

At first glance, it also resembles a human-scaled hamster maze.

Ribbon inside the Wallhola Playground

One signature feature of the Wallholla playground is the brightly-coloured, ribbon-like platforms appear to be floating between the muted posts and wire mesh walls. Although it is somewhat of a high element, the structure adheres to playground safety standards and offers a wide variety of physical and mental engagement for hours of kids games and beneficial play.
