In Manhattan’s South
Street Seaport is the first of Rockwell Group’s permanent Imagination Playgrounds. Based on progressive ideas of childhood development, the space allows
children to build their own fun.
The stage is set for self-directed play and learning.
A listening forest of pipes lets children play with sound.
The playground is a flexible armature that fosters many types of play.
Water features reflect the proximity to the East River.
The former business district has become a thriving, round-the-clock community.
The park has three key components: an array of loose blocks and tools; sand and water features; and play associates who help children engage in games of their own making.
The dream of a permanent Imagination Playground in New York City came to life in collaboration with New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
The blocks encourage free play and imaginative thinking outside of swings and slides.
