Overview

The playground at Amplatz Children's Hospital was created to give patients, and their siblings, an escape from life in the hospital. Along with an animal-themed design, special focus was put toward making the playground equipment adaptive to children with IVs and using mobility devices. The result was a first-of-its kind IV-friendly slide! The playground is named for Minnesota Vikings Center John Sullivan, who helped fund the playground. The design includes cues to John in the safety surfacing and a #65 Find (his football number) throughout the equipment.
