I get so excited when I discover a cool playground on the web however I am even more excited about this Playground dubbed ‘Geopark’.  ‘Geopark‘ is completely constructed using recycled materials left over from the local oil industry in Stavanger, Norway.

The Norwegian Architects Helen and Hard utilized the expertise and materials (including waste) obtained from the oil industry as well as the involvement and ideas of local youths to create a park sensitive to the site and needs of the community. The park includes spaces for play, skate and riding and discarded objects are used to create a jumping landscape, a trasfer basket, chill-out area and an exhibition space to house graffiti and street art.

‘Geopark’ was originally intended to have a lifeline of one year,  however’ according to the Helen and Hard website, there are discussions to make the Park a permanent feature.
