A new playground for the cheese-dairy's guests

Press release of the cooperative « Laiterie de Gruyères »

For its young guests, La Maison du Gruyère has looked for a playground related to a theme dear to him: the cow.

Different companies have been contacted and the project of the company Lactell, happy coincidence, was accepted. Based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the company is specialized in the development and construction of playgrounds as well as spaces for outdoor sports. The elements that were chosen for the structure of La Maison du Gruyère come from the range of the company Uniplay HAGS, pioneer for playground equipment since more than 65 years. The structure corresponds to the TÜV safety standards and to the standards which are required by the BPA. These latter points also answer the requests which the Cooperative "Gruyères Dairy" has for its guests.

This imaginary "cow" offers many opportunities to have fun while using every muscle of the body without even noticing. It also leaves space for fantasy and each child lives a different adventure depending on their age. The tail allows climbing on the back of the cow and the trip finishes by slipping along its tongue...

It also wants an extension or the prelude of the discovery of the Gruyère AOP production in visiting the exhibition "Le Gruyère AOP a journey to the heart of the senses". From the milk produced by the cow to the delicious dishes made with Gruyère AOP, this exhibition, which is interactive and fun, gives all the answers and in addition to it, the opportunity to experience live production 3-4 times a day depending on the season, always between 9am and 11am and 12:30 and 14:30.
