New photos from Nature Built playground

Girl in grassWe just got some new overhead shots of the KaBOOM! Nature Built Playground in YMCA of Honolulu Camp H.R. Erdman in Waialua, Hawaii! The 29,000 square foot playground celebrates nature in a fun and exciting way, with a unique blend of natural elements in a landscape. Native plants and materials were used to create the spacious playground, which also functions as an educational tool on environmental sustainability for the Camp’s children.

See if you can find the following in the photos below:

  • a large fort partially made using previously cut down trees
  • a jumping course created from recycled tires and mangrove stumps
  • a slide embedded into the natural topography of a hill
  • a maze consisting of native Hawaiian vegetation
  • an edible forest including native Hawaiian plants
  • a natural amphitheater/outdoor classroom
  • a boulder garden of climbable rocks
