Stretchmarks Asia have designed a new activity park in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, that is aimed at not only providing climbing and adventure sports facilities but also at being becoming a social and community space.

Beast Park is housed in a 2,000sq m (21,500sq ft), 15m (49ft)-high warehouse-like space in the Bukit Bintang shopping and entertainment area of the city.

Around 978sq m (10,500sq ft) of the interior walls are fitted with climbing holds, catering for different styles, abilities and routes.

There are walls for bouldering up to 4.4m (14.4ft), a top rope climbing up to 10m (32.8ft) and lead climbing up to 15m (49.2ft).

The activity park also includes an obstacle course with nine obstacles including rope swings, spin cycle, warped walls, a Bosu ground, jump tubes and bars.

As well as offering a fun accompaniment to the centre's climbing walls, the course can be used as a training facility and has equipment for timing users.

For children, meanwhile, there is a playground that includes nets, bouldering walls guided by LED lights and a junior obstacle course.

In addition to the various activity offers, there is a café and there are spaces for guests to gather and socialise.

The large building makes ample use of natural light and also allows space for a hanging light installation designed by Jun Ong.

Thibault Paquin, CEO of destination consultancy Celebrating Life who partnered on the project, said: "Beast Park is designed as a place that is physical, social, fun and brings together a community of all ages through a seamless guest experience incorporating social activities, cool vibes, quality food and drinks and a focus on repeat visitation."

The project was started in February 2019 and was completed in December.
