Luckey Climbers


Tom Luckey and his son Spencer design biomorphic climbing systems that feature in many large-scale museum installations. Surrounded by nets, they allow for a much greater height than in most playground experiences. I have personally climbed one, and it was great! Luckey considers himself a sculptor..his climbers, he says, are like fountains, and the kids are the water.

    I love this kind of structure. A mall near my parents house has a huge one of these and it looks so crazy when filled with kids. The one problem is if you have a kid, like mine, who likes to evade capture, these can be an ordeal.

    I want to try this. You have a cool blog, it would be fun to play on all these structures. 🙂
    Seeing all your parks made me think of one that we saw this summer in Girdwood Alaska. We took a picture of a plaque that made it especially interesting: “Little Bears Community Playground. This park was designed by Girdwood's children and constructed by its magnificent citizens.”
