Water & Play: Just Try to Drag Them Away
Part of the interactive playscape at Darling Park, Sydney Australia by Aspect Studios
This what I’m talking about! Creating parks that draw children in and capture their imaginations for hours on end through endless movement, experimentation and, what the designers of Dalring Park call, “acceptable risk taking.” (FastCo. Design)
Can you think of anywhere in your community where some innovation & inspiration is needed?
NOTE: Traverse City is no Sydney Australia and we won’t be matching this output on our waterfront. However, part of the goal from the 2010 planning process was capturing the essence of creating play through out the entire project, namely at Clinch Park. We do this through great design.
