Bicentennial Children’s Park

Built

The project consists of over 1,800 m2 children’s playground, including tree houses, swings with harness, a forest of water spheres, and a toboggan cascade with more than 60 toboggans arranged on the hillside. The proposal uses the difficulties of the terrain to solve a classic dilemma of children’s games: make them either safe or entertaining? The hillside slope allowed us to reach enough height to make them fun, without being a threat to children’s safety. Furthermore, the perimeter fence of the park is a play area of 310m.
