  • Castaway Island Imagination Playground
    Children can venture onto a shipwreck washed up on the sands of a deserted tropical island, surrounded by a beautiful flowering landscape. A nearby sandcastle with a grass roof has a coconut stack climber, a bridge made of paddle oars and bright orange rescue raft made into a slide chute.

  • Nature's Playground: Chimney Rock's Woodland Adventure
    In the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina, 25 minutes outside of Asheville, are the beautiful towns of Lake Lure and Chimney Rock Village. Here, families are discovering a magical interpretive trail where kids of all ages can ride on the backs of bears, climb into a turtle shell, sit in a tree house with a great horned owl and control the flight of birds.

  • A Landscape of the Imagination
    Devon's Place is an enchanted landscape that transforms the play experience into a journey of the imagination. The one acre landscape provides challenges, thrills and opportunities to children of all physical, social and mental abilities, including, those that are severely challenged.

  • Juan Solomon Park, Indianapolis, Ind.
    The planning stages of the project determined a wastewater lift station was required, and Juan Solomon Park was designated the best location. The building incorporates a natural stone veneer facade and green roof to blend into the site, while using other sustainable site design applications throughout the project for stormwater quality and management.
