La Serpentina Playground – Chile
La Serpentina Playground is located in a larger park at the bottom of an urban hill, called Parque Bicentenario de la Infancia, in Santiago, Chile. The project helped to develop a large enough play area that was safe and attractive to kids. Inspired by paper serpentine streamers, the colorful playground is 1,300 feet long and flows with movement just like a slithering snake. Built as an inside “fun zone,” children have access to slopes and slides, and the area marks the end of the “Bicentennial Park for Children.” It’s a great area to keep an eye on your kids and ensure family safety!
Thanks for sharing your special projects with us, Fahneu!
