The City of Guelph selected Earthscape to design and build a custom play space in one of the city’s oldest and most valued green spaces.  Exhibition Park provided a beautiful backdrop for this adventurous play space.  With a great deal of input from the local neighbourhood association, a playground was collaboratively designed to include large and small log-jams, hill slides, climbing timbers, swings, a water pump and sand play area.  Amongst these well spaced play elements are pathways, rocks and shade trees.  The community has embraced the park as their own and it has become a family destination for the city.  Described by one neighbour who said, “Kids playing, teenagers climbing alongside them, families congregating with other neighbours to socialize. You have ‘created’ our community. We thought we had a strong neighbourhood before, but now it feels so much more united. Thank you for that.”
