The space will be made from items donated from neighborhood dwellings to evoke a deeper sense of community.

One of the noteworthy entries in the recently-concluded Richard Krajicek Foundation Playground Awards revolves around strengthening community ties while reducing the ecological footprint. This year's second placer is BOARD for their concept, the Recycled Apartment playground, which encourages locals in a particular area to share tools and other items to turn a playground into a place literally formed by and for the community.

The playground itself will be shaped in the exact layout of nearby apartments, and residents are encouraged to donate unwanted items to make the park- old coins for walkways, old planters for plants, and old wine corks to provide a game surface.
