The Harvest Green barn-themed playground is a part of a new, master-planned development, south-west of Houston, is focused on integrating agriculture into everyday life as an agri-hood. A thread of farmland weaves through its public spaces and provides design inspiration for this barn-themed playground, collaboratively designed with SWA Group. The multi-level barn tower will be the playground center piece, visible from the road and serving as an epic landmark. Inside, the tower will offer graduated challenges that increase in difficulty as children climb higher.
There are multiple entry and egress points to the barn, including 16 foot tube slide off of the third level. Play options inside the barn are varied; adventurous children can climb up the barn ladders, crawl among spider webs, hide out with friends behind hay bales or weave through the rope chaos.
