Chopin City Park in Swinoujscie

Playground is located in the Chopin City Park in Swinoujscie (Poland) and designed by Arthur Bronisz, Alicja Jasińska, Joanna Antosik and Anna Miszczyńska (Bronisz Land Design).

Before the World War II the cemetery was located in the park. Therefore the construction works must be carried out with particular care. The remains of the tombstones were transferred to the municipal cemetery. The construction of the park has provoked media interest. The playground was exceptionally 'controversial' because of the concrete elements. Townsfolk, officials and the media criticized the project for the used material, shape and gray color. Designers proceeded from the assumption that elements of the playground will move the imagination of children. And so it happened. Since the children took possession of the playground protests died down, and the place is one of the biggest attractions in the region - both for Polish children and for the youngest residents of the nearby German village.

    This is fantastic! I am a former Drama teacher, currently teaching Fine Art, to school-aged kids, in various schools in and around Hollywood, in California. I moved here from New Mexico to start an after school program based on engagement & participation, freedom, but most of all FUN!
    I’ve recently gotten interested in combining seniors and kids together because I think there is a wealth of knowledge, imagination, curiosity, creativity, and fun between them. In the U.S., both populations are kind of considered secondary, when in reality they are both treasures. I just love this project! Very inspiring.

    And remember, the groups that play together, work best together!
