Artists at Play

Seattle, Washington

Artists at Play is a playground with a creative spirit. This imaginative space is located at the Seattle Center. It was designed by artists from the Pacific Northwest, with input from local kids. The result includes many traditional playground features—but with a twist. There’s a 38-foot-long curly slide, an ADA-accessible, human-powered carousel, and a song fence that looks like a giant pan flute. There’s also a 30-foot climbing tower, as well as a labyrinth that leads to a bronze rebus, where kids can practice their riddle-cracking skills. —Karena Phan
