“Parks and playgrounds are the soul of a city.” 
Marty Rubin


Walking around the park, have you ever wondered why some of the parks and their buildings get to be so neglected? Why so beautiful places do not reveal their full potential? What is their true story behind the “curtain”?

Well, we have! And not only that, we thought about how to make them as much accessible to all people who want to learn something about them and in them!

We invite you to be one of those people and become a part of our HICAPS project! So come on and check us out!

What we did?

HICAPS project has built 8 different concepts on how to revitalize 8 different castle parks. By building different interactive contents and by developing tools, our aim was to enrich park spaces and turn them into a place for spending time in, socializing in nature, interaction, a places for educational workshops, game, ect. Simply put, the idea was to renovate the space for renovation of community! Also, we have developed a set of guidelines that will show how we achieved our mission and in a long term help someone else who wants to follow our example and do something similar in their own community.
