GreenWorks was hired by PacTrust to design a new nature play area within the Columbia Tech Center in Vancouver, Washington. Columbia Tech Center is a 410-acre mixed use development that includes a 12-acre park that promotes a live-work balance for the community. The new 25,000 square foot playground will become the heart of the park and will be a significant amenity for the development. Once complete, the playground will be a destination for children in Vancouver and the entire metro area.
The design for the playground encompasses a broad spectrum of play experiences for children of all ages and abilities including a sand and water play area, boulder and log climbing, a large mound with a climbing tower, embankment slide, and rope bridge, and a discovery area with trails, musical instruments, log fort, and densely planted mounds so children can imagine they are in a forest.
