Working Mother;Jun/Jul2007, Vol. 30 Issue 5, p17
The article reports that the playground designed by architect David Rockwell for New York City conjures images of a circus set and will be different from the plastic-and-cement features common in most town parks. The playground, which is set to open in late 2008, will be outfitted with colorful foam blocks, a stretch of sand and nifty building materials. Salaried play associates will also be provided.
