Jack London Square Playground

As part of the revitalizations at Jack London Square, TS Studio transformed an underutilized plaza into a playground surrounded by native and drought tolerant gardens. Adjacent the bay, this windy waterfront site is protected by a proposed grove of drought tolerant trees. An expansive folded lawn extends from the lower level promenade to the on-structure plaza and playground area, providing a space for play and picnicking with views to the bay.  Native and drought tolerant gardens transform the playground into a low maintenance self-sustaining healthy urban ecology.
