Eden’s Fallen Log

Over a period of ten years, the Eden Project in Cornwall, England has transformed a disused clay mine into a lush and fertile oasis. Environmental, educational and cultural discoveries are the heartbeat of this wonderland.

The Eden Project also has a massive section of oak trunk that serves as a rustic play station. The trunk comes from an oak that fell naturally and was then hollowed and sandblasted by Touch Wood Enterprises Ltd.

The log took two weeks to prepare. After sandblasting and treatment with osmo oil, it should last in the vicinity of 25 years.

Thanks to @kindlinglily for bringing this lovely play space to PlayGroundology’s attention. Thanks to Touch Wood Enterprises Ltd. for the photos. Finally, thanks to the Eden Project for the imagination to make it happen.
