THE FRIGATE PLAYGROUND IS CLOSED UNTIL SPRING
The kids' playground is one of the main new attractions of the Island. Designed by West 8 in collaboration with Richter, the leading specialists in public spaces for children of all ages, this one-of-a-kind playground has been modeled after the hull of the Peter and Paul frigate. It is built at 80% of the original scale and measures 26 meters long and 6 meters high. The ship has been outfitted in keeping with the traditions of Russia's master shipbuilders. The interior space is divided into several levels of play spaces, each in accordance with safety standards. Here the Island's smallest visitors will feel like real sailors among slides, ropes, cannons, telescopes, and steering wheels. All of these elements immerse them in the history of the Island and its founder, Peter the Great. Next to this playground is a smaller covered area to allow parents to comfortably keep an eye on their children as they play.
Age restrictions for the children’s playground:
Children under the age of seven not allowed into the children’s playground or onto the Frigate without the direct personal supervision of a parent or legal guardian.
Children up to the age of 12 can visit the children’s playground and climb on the Frigate independently as long as they are supervised by a parent or legal guardian.
Children under the age of 12 must not be left without the supervision of a parent or legal guardian at the children’s playground for any length of time.
Please remember that the administration is not responsible for helping parents to supervise their children.
Access to the playground may be restricted by the park’s employees if the number of children on the Frigate exceeds capacity (100 people).
Dear children and adults, our Frigate is one of the largest playground ships in the world, so please read the rules carefully.
Exploring the Frigate, having fun with the people around you, and climbing the Frigate as long as you are able to do so without an adult accompanying you.
If you are older than 14, please let the younger children go first, allowing them an opportunity to explore all the various spaces of the Frigate. If there aren't any younger kids around, then feel free to look around for yourselves.
Keeping the Frigate safe for your children and grandchildren.
Sharing your experience at New Holland's Infocenter.
Leaving backpacks and larger bags at the Bag Check.
WHAT'S NOT ALLOWED:
Bringing food, chewing gum, candy, cakes, cotton candy and beverages onto the Frigate.
Playing on the Frigate after dark or in bad weather.
Pushing, shouting, or cutting in line.
Breaking or damaging the Frigate.
Bringing toys like swords, balls, toy cars or dolls, onto the Frigate. For safety reasons a child’s hands must be free.
Ignoring the instructions of the administrators and entering the playground when access has been limited.
Respect your child’s right to find their own comfort level in terms of speed and height. Do not seat your child or push them. This will reduce any risks, while allowing your child to have an enjoyable time learning new things and discovering new experiences.
Make sure your child only uses playground equipment that is appropriate to their height and skill level. Please remember that for children playing, exploring, climbing and socialising are more important than taking photos. Please come again to take photos when your child is older.
Make sure your child is wearing appropriate clothing and footwear. Please avoid heels, long scarves, necklaces, small bags worn around the neck, headphones and other items that could catch on any part of the ship. It is important that your child has ample ankle support and clothing that allows free movement.
If you or your child ends up somewhere difficult to get down from, please feel free to call for help from a park attendant. We are here to ensure that you have a good time.
