Our pal Sarah is on an epic roadtrip in Scandinavia and has been posting pictures of incredible playgrounds she and her family have visited. Inspired by her, we rounded up a handful of rad playgrounds around the world for you - some are super far away, one is right here in Portland.
The “Ibtasem” Playground in Bar Elias, Lebanon – a city that hosts about 150,000 Syrian refugees – was constructed after an extensive design consultation with the camp’s children. The playground is a modular playscape that can be recycled when the refugee camp is no longer necessary – and the children participated in some elements of the build.
If you find yourself in the Dallas area, make a detour to Benbrook, TX to visit Giganta - a giant vintage robot who has slides for hands!
Orenco Woods Nature Park just outside Portland in Hillsboro has a nature themed playground that includes Stickwork sculptures by artist Patrick Dougherty.
