The Pulse Park forms an activating and innovative continuation of the unique residential and business area of Kildebjerg Ry. The project’s aim is to create a vivid and coherent neighbourhood that encourages an active lifestyle and informal meetings across age, gender, social background and physical abilities. The Pulse Park will establish optimal conditions for excercise and play through thre zones that form an integral part of the landscape, the area’s many leisure activities and Kildebjerg Ry itself.
The Pulse Zone addresses primarly runners, mountain- and BMX bikers, who use the network of paths and tracks around Kildebjerg Ry for excercise. The tracks’ asphalt surface flows into the zone’s centre area in the form of hills, bulges and bowls that incite to obstacle races and artistic excercises. The zone includes several levels of difficulty and thus appeals to all ages.
The Play Zone is a forest of different functions that relate to both organised and freestyle activities. The forest consists of three consentric circles. The centre is intended for play and excercise with large tree-like elements, the second circle for outdoor fitness and the outermost area for social activities.
The Zen Zone is all about relaxation and activating all your senses. The zone is placed on an island in a small lake, which supports its meditative purpose and relaxing atmosphere. The island is shaped like a hill from a grid structure, that creates an interior space for activities like yoga, pilates and meditation as well as unformal surroundings for a business meeting.
