DC Parks and Recreation intends to renovate 32 playgrounds this year, including our own Forest Hills Playground. Its Play DC program has been working with the Friends of the Forest Hills Playground to create a park that is welcoming to all ages.
I was walking along the Baltimore Harbor recently and came across this wonderful small playground with upright xylophones, a living green tunnel and intriguing sculpture to climb and slide upon, which I could not resist. My friend Willia Hennigan took lots of photos so that I could bring them back to share.
Looking for interesting playground ideas really never left my blood since the Forest Hills Playground renovation project in 1990. I thought these might be ideas that the Friends of the Forest Hills Playground might like to consider. If you have other ideas with photos please share them.
