Fish Family Play Area

New opportunities to play just arrived in Houston, thanks to the Fish Family Foundation's generosity and the hard work of SWA and The Natural Learning Initiative. Jesse played a central role in developing the conceptual design for this innovative space while Design Coordinator at NLI. The area offers an introduction to local nature in the Buffalo Bayou area to younger kids and creates a play oasis in a highly developed dense edge of Downtown Houston. This little park is very unique. It takes advantage of an extremely difficult site and was meticulously designed to fit the land and its context. A big congratulations to everyone involved!

BIG Kid Small CITY, a local Houston blog, offers an excellent review of the nature play area!

We've updated our Lifted Landscapes page to reflect the new name. You can see the original design here.
