The enchanted village
The Parc d’Olhain is located in the north of France, approximately an hour’s drive from Calais in a woodland of about 450 hectares. The park itself covers about 200 hectares and offers outdoor activities and recreation in untouched nature. Whether golf, tennis, archery, hiking or mountain biking, everyone will find the right sports activity. In case of bad weather the multi-sports hall can be used. In addition, an adventure path between the trees and an open air swimming pool offer fun and adventure. On average, there are approximately 300,000 visitors to the park per year.
For these visitors, SIK-Holz® built an «enchanted village» (based on a design from Kompan France). The playground covers an area of about 20.0 × 16.0 m and seems to have sprung from a fairy tale book. On winding paths, the children discover a world that lets their imagination run wild. Running, climbing and sliding or hiding and observing are just a few activities that children are encouraged to explore here. Various sound and sensory games which invite to take a short rest and also provide children with physical limitations with an extensive field of activity have been integrated into these play cycles. For the adults there are hammocks around the «enchanted village» for resting and watching.
