Dutch landscape design outfit, Carve, have created some stunning playgrounds. Melis Stoke Park in The Hague was designed for children with disabilities, yet is challenging for all children. It has a wooden climbing wall with hundreds of round climbing holds and an ‘inner’ play area with a rope swing, sandpit and more. It’s a nice example of fantastic design at a small scale.
The adult playground, Boston’s latest urban activity sensation in the Seaport District. People are flocking to the three-acre site adjacent to the Boston Convention and Exhibitors Center, with its set of 20 lighted oval swings, bocce, ping pong, beanbag toss, Adirondack chairs, a sound stage, and open-air bar.
