Jul 13, 2007
The Project "Let's get playgrounds back to children" is continued in Zadar
Today on the occasion of the first Super Konzum store opening in Zadar within the Project "Let's get back playgrounds to children", Mr Josip Zaher, President of the Board of Konzum and Mr Živko Kolega, Mayor of the City of Zadar, have officially inaugurateda renovated playground in Vruljica Park, the largest park in Zadar. Konzum restored this playground withinits huge project "Let's get back playgrounds to children". The above mentioned project was initiated by Konzum and the City of Zagreb, with a view to ensure playgrounds as places where children can spend their spare time with their peers in a carefree play. After the project was almost completely realised in Zagreb, other cities all over Croatia joined the project "Let's get back playgrounds to children". Besides Konzum as initiator and investor of the project "Let's get back playgrounds to children" and the City of Zadar, that provided the city area for construction of the playground in Vruljica Park,the Regoč Company, which supplies equipment and toys for the playground,also participated in it.
The concept of each playground within the project "Let's get back playgrounds to children" is specific because of its adjustment to special needs of children, citizensand the environment where the playgrounds are situated. The playground in Vruljica Park provides excellent facilities for quality games and recreation, and it is also suitable for disabled children. This playground is equipped with combined multifunctional toys for sport and recreation purposes for three to fifteen year old children. There are also different kinds of swings, swivel, climbers and see-saw. New devices will provide children with the possibility of active and diverse play through different activities under safe conditions. Under all devices within this and all other playgrounds which are part of the project "Let's get back playgrounds to children", there is a safety zone, a specific safety surfacing amortizing possible fall or injury of a child. Konzum in cooperation with Regoč was the first in Croatia to instal such surfaces on playgrounds. All the facilities and toys meet the highest standards and safety norms, design quality and ecological standards.
