The close to 500 different apparatus, or varieties of apparatus from over 40 station groups, have been developed in line with the latest sports-scientific criteria and knowledge. Therefore, a Motorikpark is not a play area, rather a training zone.
The sight of the area and the different stations alone help to rouse the joy of exercise and awake interest in new movements and body awareness. A complete Motorikpark offers the stimulus and opportunity for a balanced and harmonious challenge and development of the body thanks to its unique apparatus and combination of stations. Innovative apparatus and clearly defined movement areas are available for all the respective movement tasks. Every single module is a creative part of a clearly visible complete concept.
Fundamental concept building blocks are multifaceted and contain unconventional aspects of differentiation, interlinking and adjustment. In particular, many exceptionally interesting and efficient opportunities are offered in relation to the implementation of the concept, “differential learning” (Schölhorn 1998)
Motor and sports scientific competences in movement develop, above all, as a result of an exhilarating (movement) environment. A fundamental impetus can be a stimulating infrastructure that supports exercise and moment. The potential in outdoor activities has hardly been explored or developed since the trends of the “fitness courses and fitness trails” of the 1960´s and 70´s. The sport scientific and creative concept of a Motorikpark offers a new approach to this area and leads to opportunities for a comprehensive, self-organised development of motor skills for almost every age and target group. The unique attractiveness of this concept is a result of sport science and praxis-relevant functionality in combination with innovative ideas and interestingly assembled, challenging apparatus. This leads to high user numbers who continue to use the equipment.
It is perhaps surprising that the appeal remains the same for all user groups through just one complete concept. The Motorikpark®´s success – with more that 10,000 users on peak days – demonstrates this potential. Respected politicians and spokespeople from the Tourism branch have enthused about the number of visitors whilst children have described the Mortorikpark® as,
“the best Playground, ever.”
