Playtop used to revive 93 Park:
'The Champs Elysees of Bogota'

Playtop has recently been used in the restoration of Bogota’s esteemed 93 Park.

The project was undertaken by Playtop’s new Columbian licensee, PIGO, and is the first time that Playtop has been installed in the country.

93 Park is a commercial and recreation park in the north of Bogota and it is one of the city’s most popular shopping, night club and restaurant areas. Earlier this year, some big name companies such as telecoms giant Movistar and technology pioneers Phillips came together to restore the park.

The renovation works began on January 9th 2014 and took just 4 months, at a cost of 2,000 million pesos (approximately one million euro). Playtop was chosen for its safety characteristics and its commitment to using recycled materials. According to the official blog of 93 Park (http://mantenimientoparque93.blogspot.co.uk/) "one of the most important points… is safety. The floor is no longer littered with sharp cobblestones, instead but it is soft play surfacing made from…recycled rubber."

Juan Rubiano of Playtop's Columbian licensee, PIGO S.A.S, adds "this park is the equivalent of the Champs Elysees for Bogota" because of its proximity to foreign embassies and the thriving cultural centre. "That's why it's such a big deal!"

Playtop is proud to be associated with the restoration and renewal of one of the capital city of Columbia's most esteemed parks, for the enjoyment of locals and tourists alike.
