Floura Teeter collaborated with the Parks and People Foundation and the Empowerment Academy to turn 75,000 square feet of asphalt parking lot into an engaging playground which also treats 100% of the stormwater runoff from the site. Although the project intent is to create green infrastructure from grey, the first task was to create a master plan for the ultimate development of the playground. To accomplish this, Floura Teeter hosted a design charrette with the students of the Empowerment Academy to define the features of the play space. Over 40 children enthusiastically participated to assist in the development of a Conceptual Master Plan. Kaboom! donated play equipment to the project which was located by the master plan.
