The request: an epic climbing structure for active young boys. The deliverable: an epic log climber of robinia timbers designed to challenge the body and the brain!
Upper Canada College, a private boys’ school in downtown Toronto wanted huge play value and lots of challenge for active and adventurous boys who want to push and test their physical abilities. Designed for students in their K-6 school and in collaboration with Evergreen and Northwood Associates Landscape Architects Ltd. we designed and built them a custom robinia climber and tower with no limits.
The boys can literally clamber all over this structure, inside and out; through tunnels, over rope bridges, between timber beams and around the outside of the tower.
In addition to the tower, a massive fallen log calls the kids to conquer another climb while the sand play area and simple play hut give kids a chance to create, build, get dirty and use their imaginations.
