Amsterdam's famous Ooster park has received several modern additions over the years, the most recent of which, is a futuristic, pebble-shaped play structure set to incite curiosity in the park's paddling pool. Paddling pools have seen dwindling crowds in Amsterdam, leaving the city to pay heavy maintenance costs. In order to preserve the nostalgic, childhood facilities, Carve, infused this paddling pool with an interactive climbing structure complete integrated sprayers.
Competing against at-home entertainment like Netflix and gaming consoles isn't an easy task for city planners, requiring Carve to continuously produce immersive entertainment-oriented structures that act like "kid-magnets" during the summer time.
The new addition to the paddling pool hopes to draw larger crowds, while encouraging kids to become more active by playing outdoors.
