Mueller Lake Park Playscape

Upside down, around, and under, defying gravity 10 times over: The crazy, amazing playscape at Mueller is a moving work of art. It's designed by playscape leader KOMPAN, which specializes in organic forms and bright, primary colors. Get ready to defy gravity: Swings rotate in circles by shifting weight, the merry-go-round moves up and down as it spins, tire-swings-turned-Frisbees move in complete circles, a sandbox with water spigots captures the attention of toddlers, and a multifaceted climbing structure with open webbing lets kids fall onto safe, soft turf. All kinds of parents and kids fill this park throughout the day, making the playscape at Mueller Lake Park one of the most diverse and innovative places to get your play on.
