[video: scene fades into a full elevated view of a playground incorporated into a hillside. Children play on a custom tower structure and a custom circular rope and belted structure. A man stands in front of the play equipment as he speaks to the camera. White text in the bottom right corner of the screen reads “Nick Lowe, Senior Landscape Architect, McAdams”.]
Nick: This has probably been one of the most rewarding projects I’ve been on with LSI. On creating a playground that was actually one that my child will get to play on every day.
Nick voiceover: And honestly with the community this park wasn’t used a whole lot except for concerts so, we kind of cam in here with a Parks and Rec director and she said. “What can we do with this hillside?”. So called Landscape Structures and we got together and started imagining things and you can see here all the beautiful play space.
[video: camera focuses up the hillside to children playing all over the custom tower structure. Children play on the circular bowled shaped structure with ropes and belt climbers. A man slowly pushes a large globe shaped two-tiered playground spinner. A woman stands nearby watching as he spins children on the spinner. Scene switches to multiple arches frames mixed together with more accessible equipment for younger children. A girl stands with her walker at a gear play panel. Scene switches to a full side elevated view showing the park, surrounding parking lot, and large pavilion nearby. Camera follows a girl as she climbs up a cargo net. Children climb and walk across the ropes and belted sections of the circle bowl structure. A boy climbs up a vertical rope with rubber ball knot hand and foot holds. Children run around the circular bowl structure and play on the different activities. Camera switches to a full elevated view of children and families playing all around the park.]
Nick voiceover: People are here just every weekend and it’s just everybody’s excited about it. A lot of the town feedback is you know it’s a great place for people to come. This is one of the only places their kids can come to play that’s for older children and is a challenge. And having such a unique playground next to downtown it’s really just an asset for the town. And really becomes a place where people want to be. Yeah, this is definitely a destination playground so.
