John A. Sullivan Playground U of M Masonic Children's Hospital

Minneapolis, MN USA


Playground Overview

The playground at Masonic 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.
