CityEdge_thumbCity Edge Housing Co-op

City Edge has asked Community Studio to assist with re-envisioning an outdated playground at their co-op. The old playground, fit only for preschoolers, will be replaced with a new durable playground designed for children 2-12 years old. Community Studio held a workshop with families, and will be working with the Co-op to develop guidelines and goals for the space, as well as a vision plan for the new play yard. The small footprint will require a creative solution. The Co-op will use the vision plan to help fundraise, with the goal to have a new playground installed by summer 2013.
