A collection of ideas, resources and reviews of some of the world’s most inspiring play spaces from the turn of the century up to the present day. This blog was started out of frustration by Paige Johnson who was tasked with looking into options for her local church’s playground. After finding an uninspiring selection of equipment starting from $25,000. She knew from her background in landscape history that many artists and designers had made creative playspaces from the 50s but was unable to find reference to them online. Eventually Paige found what she was looking for and built this website. Includes sections on design, art for play spaces and playground history.
