The Hoyt-Sullivan park playground design speaks to the community’s request for a natural play space in the densely populated and ethnically diverse city of Somerville on the north side of Boston. Featuring several multi-level play elements, including an accessible tower, the playground design takes advantage of topographical changes to challenge and inspire children in their play. A smaller slide from the first level of the tower is complimented by a taller 9 foot slide from the second level. The playground allows for non-prescriptive and imaginative play that lets kids play and explore in their own way.
The dynamic play elements found in the playground highlight the integrated site design by Klopfer Martin Design Group. Several log jam climbers promote healthy and exploratory play for all ages – the most adventurous of explorers can climb to a height of 7 feet! A custom playground tower encourages children to view the site from above and track the trains as they pass by.
