Most playgrounds are separated by age and divided between active and passive recreation. For Chuckie Harris Park, GV remixed these uses. This embankment slide at Chuckie Harris Park is eight feet wide, to accommodate groups. Built into the hillside and reached through accessible slopes, climbers, and rope pulls — the slides are integral to a circulation loop that cuts through the gardens. Stretch your hand out on a slide and you’ll buzz wisps of grass.
