In a new article entitled “New York City’s Playgrounds Swing Toward New Design Models“, the Wall Street Journal discusses the increasing focus of playgrounds on high design and imaginative play.

We were very proud to notice that our innovative block-based playgrounds were featured in the piece, with the mention of our existing Burling Slip location in Lower Manhattan as well as our upcoming tree-house-inspired Imagination Playground due to open in Betsy Head Park in 2015.

You can have a look at the Wall Street Journal article here or see a screenshot of the entire article below.

“The old-fashioned park was concrete with stainless steel, a seesaw and a swing. And now we’ve gone way beyond that.”
Mitchell Moss, professor of urban policy and planning at New York University.
