Imagine a park where you can meander through the treetops on winding aerial paths, relax in hammocks high about the forest floor and even bounce on a canopy level trampoline.

The architects Studio Dror will transform an existing green space located six miles out of the city centre into a playground for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages.

Named Parkorman, the attraction will feature treetop pathways, swings, hammocks, see-through trampolines and even giant ball-pits, so you can reconnect with nature - or just unleash your inner child.

For a more reflective experience, there will also be a maze-like sculpture trail and a cube-shaped fountain which surrounds visitors in water.
