As Patrick Hofmann, head of the Deutsche Wohnen Service Point in Dresden explains, “Demand for housing in Prohlis-Süd is growing. In particular, young families appreciate the advantages of this district: spacious green areas, refurbished housing with a modern look and affordable rents. By building these playgrounds, we want to make the estate even more attractive.”
The approximately 4,000 tenants on the estate will now benefit from six modern and generously designed children’s playgrounds in the estate’s interior courtyards. The playgrounds are intended to develop the motor skills of children and to encourage them to enjoy physical activity. When the playgrounds were being set up, great importance was attached to the know-how of a specialist regional company, and ecologically sustainable materials were used. For example, some of the playground equipment was made using recycled synthetic material that is particularly environment-friendly and resource-efficient.
