GreenWorks is excited to partner with Design Museum Portland to host “Nature Play in the City” this Friday, March 2 from 8:30-10:00am at the Center for Architecture. The event will include a brief networking session with free breakfast, followed by a short presentation by GreenWorks’ Associate Landscape Architect Ben Johnson on the Westmoreland Nature-Based Play Area. Exploring how natural playscapes are designed and created in an urban environment, Ben will discuss Westmoreland’s features including structures that exercise sustainable practices and double as play objects, from salvaged concrete re-purposed for water play elements and many salvaged logs for climbing features and custom benches.
Westmoreland Nature-Based Play Area opened in 2014 and has been embraced by children and adults alike, earning the ASLA Oregon Honor Award and a feature in Design & Play!
