Barb King Inspiration Park
Delano, MN USA
This park, in Delano, Minnesota, is a one-of-a-kind playground honoring a one of-a-kind person. Named for Barb King (1946-2008), cofounder of Landscape Structures, this playground for kids ages 2 to 12 incorporates unique angles, innovative panels and climbing nets, plus plenty of different ways for children of all abilities to swing, twist and spin. The playground also features a TopsyTurny® spinner and ZipKrooz™, the first inclusive zipline for the playground, that provides kids with a thrilling flying experience. Even more, parents and caregivers can exercise with the HealthBeat® Outdoor Fitness System installed around the park while keeping a close eye on their children playing. Fourteen stations are available for ages 13 and older of any ability and fitness level. This central gathering space also utilizes recycled materials and is recyclable at the end of its life in honor of Barb’s commitment to the environment and innovation.
