Design consultant gathers outline possibilities for Nashua playground
“In this case, the client is this large public,” Jennifer Brooke of the Institute for Human Centered Design in Boston told aldermen on Wednesday.
There are several different pieces of equipment that should be considered in the design phase of the playground, including platform swings for wheelchairs, community swings for multiple children, spinning structures, roller slides, non-sloped slides, sand and water features, according to Brooke.
Several aldermen offered their thoughts on the future playground.
“I like the idea of the space being artistic,” said Alderman David Schoneman, Ward 3, adding the idea of a sensory vertical wall was appealing. Currently, residents enjoy sunbathing and reading in that area of Greeley Park, and Schoneman said he wants to still give those visitors a chance to enjoy the space in collaboration with the playground.
Alderman-at-Large Jim Donchess encouraged Brooke to use her own judgement and creativity in helping to design Legacy Playground.
The goal, according to Brooke, is to create a community resource for all kids — despite their age, interests and mobility levels — to play side-by-side.
