Upland Design designed an exciting play experience at Jackie Robinson Park for the neighborhood as well as the kids at Mount Vernon Elementary School. The new playground creates a challenging environment with climbers up and slides down.
The bright orange and green equipment include a 10′ high deck, swings and a group spring event to keep kids moving. Rubber surfacing was specified to improve safety and reduce maintenance while making the whole playground ADA accessible. Amenities also include a seat wall, plaza space with picnic tables, accessible walk and drinking fountain. The uniform color surfacing was one of many items picked through popular vote at public input meetings. The green surface blends easily with the surrounding lawn and makes the orange play piece pop.
