Playscapes from our Correspondents

I want to highlight some of the great playscapes being posted by our correspondents!  More great playgrounds in a week than I could possibly cover in months *sigh*, I’m loving the additional content!

Natural playground lovers will want to take a look at the fabulous treehouse with Serpent Slide Meagan found at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, and the wooden snails at Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo, Brasil, posted by Ana.

Contemporary design afficionados, don’t miss the mirrored roof at Toronto’s Underpass Park as covered by Dee, and Peter Pearce’s Curved Space Diamond Structure at Japan’s Hakone Open Air Museum as documented by Amber.  She’ll be doing a full article on Peter Pearce’s work for us soon, and also covered the ultimate tire playground:  Nishi Rokugo Koen.  Daniel in Brisbane begins his posts with the enticing play-shapes formed from resin and rope by artist Amanda Harris in Brisbane.

Eloise from France highlights the innovative work of Carton Plein, including their avant-garde Rock Playground, in Saint-Etienne, and Gary in Australia helps answer a question I got from a reader long ago about the use of text and language on the playground with sensory elements at the Marysville Kin Playscape.

Have a browse round their section of the site.  You can reach it from the menu at the top of the page or from the sidebar, and since it’s still a bit under construction let me know if something doesn’t work or you have any suggestions for improvements!
