How can two districts be connected by encouraging motor skills and motion? The solution is a motorikpark!
24 exciting and very varied stations to encourage the motor skills have been built near to the river Saalach in the village of Saalbach. The stations combine on the on hand agility and fun and on the other hand the distracts ‘Jausern’ and ‘Saalbach’ with free entry.
Presentation of the project
24 exciting stations based on a concept created by sports scientists have been built near to the river Saalach in the village of Saalbach (Salzburg Austria) to encourage the motor skills. Its length is about 3,5km.
The stations combine on the on hand agility and fun and motivates people of all age groups to move and exercise and on the other hand it combines the distracts ‘Jausern’ and ‘Saalbach’ with free entry.
The stations are so creative that it’s hard to describe, but maybe the following station names can offer a brief insight:
- Spider web
- Kite surfing
- Water skiing
It is used as popular destination by families, associations, school classes and also even by the retirement home nearby and professional athletes. With those unique and very varied stations which inspire really everyone to test their own agility skills the motorikpark should be a model for all future parks, trails, stations, etc. to be built in the region.
Emblematic character of the project
This project supports our strategy in the point of common good: a meeting point to experience fun as a community was built and almost as an aside it is a basis to make two districts grow together.
As it is with free entry and concepted for all age groups it fits perfectly to LEADER.
