Upland Design is excited to see the opening of Weaver and Terney Park Playgrounds which opened in time for Memorial Day as well as Wheeler Park which opened this past week.
These playgrounds exhibit the nine key elements of Dynamic Play: moving parts, space, diversity, circuits, seating, safety, nature, social inclusion and imagination, which have become the rationale behind all our playground designs.
Weaver Park Playground features a nature themed play structure designed to include a diversity of play events to keep kids interested. A rock, slide and climber circuit creates one of many paths of movement for kids to explore while nearby, seating is provided for parents and caretakers. A vine climber, spinning turtle and dragonfly spring rider, along with a fun leaf pattern beneath the swings, ties the playground together and creates an inclusive, imaginative play environment that will keep kids coming back.
The playground in nearby Terney Park also includes a diverse selection of play elements on a single structure. Climbers, slides and steps as well as ground level activities create a variety of physical challenges for kids of all abilities that . New swings round out the play experience while a new shade sail creates a cool seating area for family picnics.
Wheeler Park a space –themed playground was mentioned recently in the Daily Herald, features imaginative poured rubber mounds depicting the asteroids and the solar system. A rocket ship play structure is complemented by a space cruiser spring rider, a mission control play panel, and an asteroid field climber and swings. Decorative panels along the fence add an educational element by depicting the history of space exploration along the accessible ramp leading into the playground. Check out the press here.
