Pixie Park at the Marin Art & Garden Center
The historic Pixie Park Co-Operative Playground is undergoing a major renovation to bring it's experience of play into the 21st century. HSLA designed a new sand play area, a new accessible circulation system, and a new toddler-friendly play zone for this non-profit parent-run playground in the heart of Marin. A series of fun new retaining walls stabilize the hillside and provide more room for seating. The main plaza and historic arbors and fencing are being restored, while the design adds new natural logs and boulders as play features. With a focus on durable materials, the style echos the playground's California Moderist beginnings. Construction is underway and expected to be complete in Spring 2020.
