Design team seeks input on new children’s play area in old Fun Forest spot
Posted on February 25th, 2014 by Laura Fonda
Remember the Fun Forest at Seattle Center? Well, it’s time for a new play spot for kids, and the Fun Forest site is set for a design overhaul.
The Space Needle owners donated $1 million for an “artist-designed children’s play area” as part of the lease agreement for Chihuly Gardens and Glass – and the Design Team wants to hear from kids and families as they kickoff a new era of play at Seattle Center.
The team is hosting a workshop on Saturday, March 1 from 1pm to 4pm in the Next 50 Pavilion Annex (across from the Armory). It’s free, and all they ask is for kids and families to “bring along your imagination, ideas, and words for a hands-on journey of exploration through sound, story, structure, and motion.”
The workshop is part of a free ParentMap Day of Play at the Seattle Center. Prior to the workshop, you can also join a free Seattle Camp Fair from 10am to 1pm in the Armory, where kids and families can learn about kid-friendly summer events in and around Seattle.
