ARCHITECTURE&KIDS, INSPIRE

AN ATYPICAL PLAYGROUND

Lions Park Playscape is a great maze build with 55-gallon galvanized drums. Within that environment, a variety of running, hiding, jumping, climbing, and other exploratory experiences exist to create opportunities for physical activity; however undulating ground surfaces, sound tubes, and sensory rooms are hidden throughout the maze to heighten discovery and create opportunities for mental stimulation and imagination.

Rural Studio is an off-campus design-build program of Auburn University. The program, established in 1993, gives architecture students a more hands-on educational experience whilst assisting an underserved population in West Alabama’s Black Belt region.

Lions Park Playscape was built in 2010, but the Rural Studio program  it is still building projects.
