The Woodland Discovery PlaygroundShelby Farms Park, Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.A.
- The Woodland Discovery Playground was the first project to be created within Shelby Farms Park, a 4,500-acre public park in Memphis, Tennessee.
- The playground includes more than 80 new native trees. Some 24,000 square feet of Chinese privet was eradicated. And 39,250-square-feet of diverse, locally adapted native understory was established.
- A one-fourth mile-long arbor structure is made from 99 percent recycled steel. The playground uses recycled athletic shoe material as a surface for several play areas and loose, recycled boot material as a soft landing under a playroom of nets and tree houses.
- Enmeshing the play space within its woodland environment promotes a sense of discovery, increases opportunities for environmental education, and cultivates children's healthy development.
