Caution: looking at pictures of the Imagination Playground and the resurgence of “Loose Parts” play structures is sure to bring on a serious case of playground envy.

Designed by architect David Rockwell, the Imagination Playground lets kids build their own play space using oversized blue foam blocks. The idea: kids work together to create amazing play using loose parts, water and sand. If you’re feeling like this is something your neighbourhood needs you can find out more here.

Imagination Playground partners with the amazing non-profit Kaboom! which works to bring playgrounds to “play deserts” (and already brought a playground to a Toronto Community Housing highrise in Rexdale).
