Public spaces that promote play and discovery are popping up everywhere from metropolitan cities to rural and suburban settings. Playgrounds such as David Rockwell's Imagination Playground in New York City and the Memorial Park Playground in Wilsonville, Oregon, present a stark contrast to the steel and plastic structures found at fast-food restaurants and many public parks today. Successful playground design groups such as Adventure Playgrounds work with communities to identify the wants and needs of their consumers. In this article, the author presents a lesson that allows students to create design ideas for recreation spaces. (Contains 1 online resource.)
