MOORESTOWN FRIENDS SCHOOL PLAYGROUND
This project envisioned a nature-based, innovative playscape at Moorestown Friends School for its preschool (ages 3-5) and lower school (ages 6-11).
Stakeholder engagement was conducted in two parts to collect survey data from staff and children. Over 200 students participated in workshop sessions that resulted in a massive city of play.
The proposed design encourages environmental stewardship and opportunities for choice in children's playtime activities. The site includes boulder scrambles and embankment slides, a giant timber climber, swings, parkour, logs for scrambling, a sand area, an immersive rain garden for outdoor learning, and plenty of planted areas for play and getting lost.
