Jacobson Park Playground

 

Renovation of a much beloved community park that was constructed by volunteers over two decades ago, now dilapidated and with accessibility issues.  Element design along side LFUCG Parks and Recreation sought to design a playground that embraces the original experience and appearance while introducing educational features related to hydrology, geology and nature of the Bluegrass.  This project was completed using design development, construction documents and contract administration for the multifaceted play experience.  We did this by salvaging existing materials to be repurposed in the new playground design, allowing us to preserve the main towers of the existing structure as a focal point and introduce an under 2 play area fully fenced with tactile raised beds, shade canopies, a discovery trail and a variety of swings,
embrace natural terrain and provide universal access.
