A couple of Mondays per month, PlayGroundology will screenshot a cyberspot that focuses on playgrounds, or play. I hope that readers will dive in and explore. Even if you’ve seen the selection before, take a moment and check to see what content has been added recently.
Think of this as a very slow stumble upon, an invitation to relish something new or to revisit an old friend. Some of the people and places may be household names in the world of play and playgrounds, others not so much. I hope all will pique your interest in what they have to offer and further your own possibilities for playfulness.
If you drop in now on Gertrude Howes Playground, it’s kind of like getting in on the ground floor. The blog has only been getting published for scant days. Its focus is documenting an urban neighbourhood’s refurbishment of, you guessed it, Gertrude Howes Playground. There’s plenty here to preserve including the green space and the Roxbury puddingstone.
For some reason when I look at the plans, I think of Pooh’s 100 Acre Wood full of gentle adventure and philosophical musings. Enjoy this opportunity to see how a community breathes new life into a cherished outdoor play space. Read the blog, follow the tweets @HowesPlayground.
