There was a lot of looking, marveling, swinging and climbing on wednesday evening in the "melm II" construction area in kups the new children’s playground was officially opened.
First and foremost, it was the children who showed their delight at the new equipment. But there were also smiles on the faces of the parents. Because their offspring now have a place to play and romp around – including a playhouse, slide, swing, ropeway and much more.
"We are a family-friendly community and we want to express that, too," said, said mayor bernd rebhan (CSU), who was pleased with the many children and their parents who attended the event.
Families populate the outskirts
It was only two years ago that the municipality approved the "melm II" development area on the outskirts of the village in the direction of burkersdorf with 52 building plots. There are now 27 houses on the site, and more lots have been sold.
The new development is mainly populated by families, which is why the new playground was built. About a year ago, the design proposals were presented on the market’s website and displayed in the office. The citizens had the opportunity to contribute their suggestions and ideas.
The participants were in favor of the kompan design proposal, rebhan recalled. There were only a few additional suggestions, such as a baby swing seat, a toddler play area or a water play facility.
Rebhan thanked the residents and also the building yard employees who assembled and installed the playground equipment. And at the end of the celebration there were not as usual fried sausages, but suitable to the high summer temperatures ice cream from tiefenklein.
The mayor stressed that this was not the last action to create a pleasant environment for families in kups.
