Natural Playscapes Design Publication

Omaha, Nebraska

Natural playscapes allow children and designers to think outside the box when it comes to playgrounds. Vireo collaborated with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission to develop a publication that outlines how natural playscapes provide places for exploration and allow a child to take it from there. Vireo’s graphics were drawn to inspire creative solutions for play environments that make use of topography, repuroposed and natural materials, and a site’s existing context. The manual also demonstrates a thorough planning, design, and management process for natural playscape development to ensure safety and success in the long run.
