Zorlu Center Playground – Istanbul

Designed to have multiple zones that resemble a wild world of imagination, the Zorlu Center Playground has low play islands for young tots, a "mountain-range" of climbing structures for older adventurers, towers, giant slides and more. The bright and colorful structures give the grounds an unique look, allowing lil' visitors to imagine that they've landed on another planet.
