Martin Park Nature Center is a beloved park in Oklahoma City. Families visit the 144 acres of trails and green spaces to connect with nature and to interact with many species of wildlife.
The Center wanted to add its very first playground, but there were concerns about compromising the natural setting. PlayWorx designed a naturalized play environment that blended seamlessly with the surroundings. There is a massive Treehouse with climbers and tube slide for 5-12 year old children at one end of the playground and a small Fort for 2-5 year olds at the other end. We included products from our PlayTrails line like Bee and Honeycomb Climbers, a Telescope, a Mushroom Spinner and steppers. There are informative signs that provide fun facts about the wildlife in the park.
The playground was finished with a combination of engineered wood fiber and poured in place rubber surfacing and a serpentine walking path that leads to and around the play area.
