NATURE PLAY, DISCOVERY & LEARNING
Silver Falls Theme Playground, Salem, Oregon
The existing playground at the Salem Child Development Center will undergo a dramatic transformation.
The playground now is a large asphalt area bound by buildings and a tall chain link fence.
This enviromenment will soon become a natural playscape with a wetland pond, trees and vines.
An existing large concrete wall will feature a mural of Silver Falls, a nearby natural area.
The mural was designed by LandCurrent in conjunction with the design of the new playground.
Elements of the natural playground will "flow" into the mural.
A local high school class painted the mural as part of their senior arts project.
LandCurrent has been working with Grace-Kells Consultant Inc.
for the Natural Playgrounds at the Ottawa Montessori school in Ontario.
Working with Peter Kells has been an absolute joy, not only is Peter very knowledgeable on playground safety standards he also has been a tremendous resource connecting us
with other professionals in the area. We have also been impressed by his knowledege of playground designers and manufactures in North America.
