Montessori Children’s Room Playground, Omaha, NE

A combination of DIY-ability and good design is rare….much as I love the ‘designer’ playgrounds I list on this blog, I have to acknowledge that specialized materials and construction methods may put them out of reach for smaller groups, less affluent communities, volunteers.
So that’s why I was so pleased to find this site. There is nothing in this Montessori school playground that requires a crane or a cement truck or the services of an architect, nothing that can’t be carried out by a church group or a community welfare organization or even parents with a modicum of skills.
I was unable to locate any information on the designer or installation date. Please enlighten me if you know.
UPDATE: Thanks to reader clowy for letting me know that this design is by Garden Groomers of Omaha. They don’t appear to have a website.

    Mark Samuels of Garden Groomers desinged this wonderful play area for young children. He has a knack for a sense of what the young child desires (space, movement, creativity) and also makes the area aesthetically pleasing for the adults.

    My first thought as a preschool admin was “OMG That child is swinging on a rope OVER ROCKS! Insanity! And they are standing on a 2 foot ledge!”
    Honestly I think it looks very lovely but the adult in me screams “boo-boo” alert.
