Eccles Elementary in Cordova – A few Pictures

They put a playspace above the new gym (set into the hill), so we collaborated with MRV Architects to make this a patterned playspace using resilient tiles. Maze… four square… a two-lane “track” around it… and other random fun that kids can use to their own imagination.
We had fun (and complexity) in designing this playground on a sloped site. The photo doesn’t show it, but the playground steps up toward a covered play shelter. The school had previously purchased some play equipment that we found places for… and you’ll see kids love things like the tilted sky runner and the web climber in the background. Equipment can be good!!
