Carkeek Park Playground, Barker Landscape Architects, Seattle Washington,

Barker Landscape Architecture is also responsible for the Carkeek Park Playground in Seattle, which references the nearby Piper’s Creek and its Chum salmon with a design that includes rune-carved grottos,  tide pools, and a 19 foot long salmon slide!

I also like the firms integration of a small sandpit into the Port Edmonds Plaza, next to sloping grass lawns that are perfect for either kids or tired adults, and their simple playscape of rocks, sand and a moose in Gleneden Park, Spokane County.
