Playground Obstacle Course for Children

Why should we install an obstacle course on the playground?

Outdoor trim trails are not only fun for children, but they also enhance their development. Rolling, jumping over obstacles, crawling, squeezing, and climbing improve a child’s physical fitness, upper and lower body, motor skills (fine and gross motor skills), agility, speed, endurance, and strength, as well as hand-eye coordination and balance.

Navigating the obstacles not only helps children develop physical and sensory motor skills but also trains their memory and problem-solving abilities.


5 benefits of obstacle courses

Passing the stations of an obstacle course is a challenge that makes an everyday day in kindergarten or PE in a primary school far more exciting than usual. A trim trail is an amazing and thrilling addition to almost any outdoor playground, especially in the park or other recreational, green space.

Lars Laj’s trim trails are reserved only for children!

Apart from playground obstacle courses, we also offer a wide range of fitness equipment for outdoor gyms and fitness trails for grown-ups. For more information on what devices we recommend for outdoor exercise, see our short guide on designing trim trails.

Natural wood or modern steel?

Depending on the playground’s style and the surrounding area, we recommend either wooden fitness equipment made of classic larch wood and natural robinia or modern trim trail stations made of powder-coated steel.
