Tractor Playground, Bradner Gardens Park, Seattle

Reader Justin also sent me the link to this Seattle tractor play feature ( a year and a half ago,  which is about the current length of my email queue, for which I am endlessly apologizing).  At first glance, it’s a pretty simple themed object.  But a few thoughtful additions–a platform on the back of the tractor, ropes extending back to a tree trunk, and a chassis tilted by mounting one wheel on a tree stump-make it much more playable.  Even the simplest of play features deserve our thoughtful design attention. (UPDATE: Bradner Gardens, and the tractor installation, are the work of Barker Landscape Architects.)
