After 17 years of heavy use, the Bushnell Park Foundation (BPF) removed the existing playscape with plans to rebuild a new, safer play environment to cater to the City’s children and parents. After input from the City’s Planning and Zoning Commission, To Design was engaged by the BPF to redesign this important site to address their concerns.
Our site design provides accessibility throughout the playground with new concrete walks, resilient play surfacing, and play equipment. Access from the carousel was also incorporated. The new playground, to be installed by Creative Recreation, LLC, features two new play structures, one for ages 2-4 years old and the other for ages 5-12. The resilient play surface will ensure a safe play environment. The unique play equipment will also feature Hartford-specific elements, including miniature recreations of the State Capitol dome and the Soliders and Sailors Memorial Arch.
The Bushnell Park Playground broke ground in August 2018.
