Hangberg Playground Revitalization Project

How can a community playground be revitalized for children and become a symbol of pride?

The Hangberg Revitalization Project is a community led social space that aims to provide a symbol of pride and peace for the community. Central to the design are ideas incorporating concepts of safety and violence prevention; community interaction, gathering and expression; and a beacon of hope, peace and community identity.

Primarily, the design focuses on providing a space for positive development and interaction of children. The main infrastructure is therefore aimed at them. Standard playground attractions will be included as well as structures and games that enhance learning and cooperation. As a part of this thinking it is vital that children are partaking in the entire development process of the space, so that it best embodies their wishes.
