This week we have started the construction of the tree top adventure with nets elements in Zeist. A special project when you take a look at the first stages. Tije, a young boy from Zeist, came up with the idea after participating in a competition where kids were able to pitch their idea in front of a jury.
After pitching the idea, the jury and residents of Zeist voted. Tije heard that his idea had won and that it would be realized within the counsil of Zeist. The counsil set out to find an appropriate location and eventually decided the tree top adventure was going to be built at Zwembad Dijnselburg (swimming pool). Now, a few years after the pitch, the idea is being realized!
Design of the tree top adventure
After obtaining the final approval, we started with the design of the adventure. Many options were viewed and we have come up with a climbing route between the trees with a large adventure tower and bounce net. The adventure will be built at a local swimming pool in Zeist where the outside area will be used, located next to the outdoor pool.
The objective of the adventure is to provide a unique experience for residents in Zeist and surrounding towns and villages. This is the first time an adventure concept like this will be built in the center of the Netherlands and we are proud to be part of the realization.
Tije even visited our office and workshop to get a taste of what it takes to design and build a tree top adventure! We showed him all the materials our own sawmill. It was a great day!
Progress of the tree top adventure
The concrete has been placed and in the next five weeks we will construct the elements, platforms, nets and tower. The opening of the park will be in April and together with Tije and the Council of Zeist, it is going to be a great success!
