Grassy slide at the San Francisco School, Miller Company, 2003


Jeff Miller and company used the broken concrete from renovation at the San Francisco School to terrace a hillside, and set this slide into it. I love that the kids can reach out and touch the grasses while they slide.
I couldn’t find more photos, but according to an article at edutopia the playground also includes climbing trees adorned with blue stripes that mean “Go no higher.” and a water pump in a pile of dirt for mud play. Rubber boots are provided. Any school that has a stock of wellies for its students gets my vote…
