Design Inspiration

Mound Valley: Varied terrain and ground surfaces greatly increase play value, allowing opportunities for jumping up, over, running around, hiding behind, and changing views and perspectives. These mounds are clad in a thick shock-absorbing base layer constructed of recycled tire shavings, a LEED Rated environmentally-compatible technology that is non-toxic and has zero VOC emissions. This not only creates a safe climbable surface, it meets our school's mission to use a durable material that is sustainable.

Mound Slide: Combines the excitement of climbing up high with the exhilaration of a quick descent from the top of a mound.

Play Platform: This platform is open-ended, serving as a back-drop of prop for climbing, dramatic play, hide and seek, or a quiet place for chatting and visiting.

"Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn." - O. Fred Donaldson
