Overview

Training centre for Early Childhood Educators in Edmonton and first example of a natural playground. Bienenstock collaborated with Kathy Globle on the design and the playground was installed by our team. First long distant project built by us. A real example of why the borders and transitions are as important as the elements themselves. this was a repurposed legacy school property that recognized their playground needed to be a community park and chose not to build fences for containment but instead created a permeable planted border which allowed people in but still defined the space well enough for kids to feel safe and embraced.

The sand area is awesome! It’s a good size and always packed with kids.  It has vertical stumps and boulders border that has many purposes: it keeps the sand in, acts as a table top for sand creations, can be an obstacle course and allows a place for teachers to sit and engage with the children.
