Playground Ideas, Finalists: Not-for-Profit Technology Innovator of the Year ?
This playground was build for 400 children aged 3-6 at a Salvation Army nursery school in Lars des Flores, Sao Paulo, Brazil. After a thorough community consultation the design was based on the teachers and students feedback. The local community, teachers and a group of Salvation Army members from Canada were fully involved in the build. The project was funded by Salvation Army, Mississauga. The stencilling around the walls is based on the local kite (Pipa) designs and the gardens are all planted with local plants from the surrounding forest.
