I would love to have this playground in my neighborhood.
And yes, it is as it looks: a limited edition bronze sculpture designed as a functional playground!
Created by artist Tom Otterness, the piece above was commissioned as a private installation in Massachusetts. But, Otterness has done public playgrounds as well, including the Big Girl Playground in Yonkers, NY
and the Silver Towers Playground, in another of New York City’s neighborhoods.
As I was looking around his website, I saw that Otterness’ bio also includes a privately commissioned playground in Colorado.
So, now all I need to know is: who’s backyard is this playground in, and when can my kids and I come over for a play date?
