RFP for Innovative Denver Playground

I  was really excited to hear from the City of Denver's Park and Recreation Department last week with news of their ambitious RFP to re-imagine play at City Park:

"Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) is challenging currently accepted definitions of play and is looking to re-think play as a unique, multi-faceted experience in an urban, multi-generational space in Denver’s Historic City Park.  Highly motivated, qualified and experienced design teams are asked to submit their qualifications and ideas for this challenge. The new space will be unique and will include community context and advocacy."

And they're committed to a $3-5 million dollar project.  Playground-makers often get in touch with me and say things like "we'd be more imaginative if cities would let us"....here's your chance.   Hooray Denver for being play visionaries...I can't wait to see the results!

Much more info on their reimagine play website:  the project launches tomorrow, March 7, with a Public Open House 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Museum of Nature & Science, City Park.

P.S.  If your city has an RFP for an out of the ordinary play space, I'd love to promote it.  Get in touch.
