Description
Three community forces joined to re-create the Adventure Playground located near the University of
California - Irvine: the grassroots activists, community workshops, and the city staff. They helped bring
this children's sanctuary back to life and recreate the fun-loving atmosphere for children around the
community.

This course provides a brief introduction to adventure playgrounds, the ecological and planning
constraints that gave context to the redesigned playground, and the collaborative design process that is
giving form to a new kind of adventure play.

Leading the presentation is Claire Latané, Senior Associate at Mia Lehrer + Associates and also a writer
with passion for topics related to landscape architecture and playgrounds.
