Shunchang Direct Government Kindergarten

Shunchang is the birthplace of the Great Sage culture, and the local legend of the Monkey King is deeply ingrained in the hearts of the people. To help children better experience the enduring charm of their hometown culture and engage with the vivid imagery of Chinese mythology, we have incorporated the image of the Monkey King, Sun Wukong, into the outdoor landscape design.
 

► Twisted Golden Cudgel

Kindergarten Outdoor Design

The outdoor play area features a large-scale activity toy that integrates the Great Sage culture. The golden cudgel is transformed into a twisted slide, with railings and pillars on the boardwalk, symbolizing the cudgel as a protector for children. Children, resembling lively and adorable little monkeys, traverse the boardwalk up and down, creating an outdoor landscape that revolves around the activities of the Monkey King. This allows children to experience the charm of the Monkey King up close.
 

► Eco Sand and Water Pool

Kindergarten Outdoor Design

The sand and water pool simulates a natural ecological landscape, featuring large rocks, wooden waterwheels, wooden bridges, and various flowers and plants planted in the surroundings, blending the sand and water pool with the imagery of the Monkey King.
 

► Outdoor Grand Stage

Kindergarten Outdoor Design

In one corner of the park, a grand outdoor stage is designed for children. The stage backdrop is designed as a waterfall in a water curtain cave. Next to the stage, there are multiple tiers of cloud ladders, enhancing the stage's entertainment and interactivity.
 

► Miniature Wenchang Pavilion

Kindergarten Outdoor Design

The Wenchang Pavilion library is a replica of a famous local building, and it also incorporates the Great Sage culture, adding a strong cultural atmosphere to the landscape design. The base of the treehouse Wenchang Pavilion serves as a storage area, while the upper level is connected to the adjacent suspension bridge, increasing the climbing challenge for young children. In the summer, the pool water ripples, lotus flowers bloom, bringing refreshing moments.
 

► Passion Fruit Orchard

Kindergarten Outdoor Design

The planting area provides an excellent way for children to connect with nature. The flower and fruit pergola offers more space for climbing plants to grow and provides effective shade. Decorative Great Sage culture walls can also be used for promotional displays.
 

► Glass Boardwalk

Kindergarten Outdoor Design

To acquire the skills of Sun Wukong, the ability to ride on clouds and mist is the first step. Overcoming the fear of heights is a major challenge for children. The glass boardwalk is the first test of their courage. The surrounding patterns depict Flower-Fruit Mountain and clouds, making children feel as if they are truly walking in mid-air.
