In Chorzów, Poland, a vibrant, multi-use public park highlights the possibilities of play. Designed by architecture firm SLAS, “Activity Zone” perforates a large concrete expanse with myriad shapes and structures, each with its own function. Playground and fitness equipment intersperse between tidy ball courts, seating, and green areas, including a number of large existing trees. To emphasize accessibility, the studio chose concrete as a primary material to ease navigation for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility.

“Activity Zone” comprises the first phase of an integration initiative between the University of Silesia and the city of Chorzów, redeveloping a former military site into a more welcoming space while building connections between the academic and local communities.
