Flora range blends in with nature

Tiger Park is located in the middle of a pine forest, which is why the Lappset Flora range blends in perfectly with the surrounding. The play area comprises an area of almost one thousand square meters.

The high Flora Towers rise up to 9.6 meters giving an extraordinary play experience to visitors and providing an outstanding view over the playground. The twin Flora Towers hosts the tiger nests offering exciting encounters with two full-sized tiger characters. The balance beams make balance and coordination exercises look easy.

The Farm is reserved for toddlers with its farmhouse, tractor, and relaxation spaces.

Designers Toni Keskitalo and Tero Puotiniemi of Lappset’s design team have provided the design of the entire area in close cooperation with the client, Ranua Wildlife Park.

“We are extremely satisfied with the construction of the completely refurbished play area. The construction work took its time because of extreme snow conditions of the past winter and the coronavirus restrictions. The play park blends in the surrounding nature of Finnish pine forest just perfectly, forming an essential part of the entity.”
