iPlace Design: Longyan City is in the west of Fujian Provence, located near the border of Guangdong and Jiangxi Provinces. It is an inland city with a rich history and a profound cultural heritage. However, the current city parks in Longyan do not reflect this proud tradition; they are old and outdated. Although these historical city parks are in the process of renovation, they present many problems and their progress has been delayed. Zijinshan Play Park will not only provide children in Longyan with a memorable playground, it is imagined that it will add significantly to the city’s green open space network.
The main planning and site design challenges of the Play Park include: a major roadway cutting the site in half, separating parking from play, and requiring a pedestrian bridge connection; and challenging site topography in excess of 10%, and including severely-steep hilltops. The overall plan creates multiple connections to bring together all the parts of the park.

The Longyan Play Park is a multi-age children’s play facility on 10HA of land within the Zijingshan Sports Park Residential Community, in Longyan. In designing this play park we hope to provide a “Happy Playground” in which children can relax in nature, while exploring and learning through play. It can also be a place that reminds parents of their own childhood, and inspires them to enjoy precious time with their kids.

At the beginning of the design, the team visited many reputable children’s parks recently built in China. We found that many play sites lack green areas with big shade trees. This has caused the play equipment to become overheated in the summer, seriously impacting the play experience. The creation of natural ways to integrate shade within play became one of the key design factors of this project.

Design highlights: There are a large number of big shade trees nicely nestled into many different park play areas. When choosing play equipment, it is critical to select heat tolerant materials such as plastic, versus metal, to avoid overheated surfaces from sun exposure. The designers carefully laid out the play areas that combine play equipment and experiences into a green or water-cooled area. This green children’s park will become a strong lasting memory for its users.

The main components of the Play Park include: a pedestrian bridge; a waterpark (including a water pool and a sand pool; a carousel court; multiple sliding venues on site slopes; a pressure-inflated jumping facility; a fountain-jet entry plaza; a themed, on-track Choo-choo train for kids and adults; and numerous support buildings for ticketing, food and beverage, toilets and other supporting functions.

Ant House is one of the highlights of the original plan, the designer is inspired by the characteristics of ant nest in nature and create an interesting “maze” with exploration in the site. The ants are hardworking and cooperative. There are storehouses with different functions in Ant House, which is enjoyable and attractive.
