CLH’s Zak Pierce Presents at US Play Coalition Value of Play Conference

CLH’s Zak Pierce Presents at US Play Coalition Value of Play Conference

CLH’s Zak Pierce conducted a joint presentation with Vortex International titled “plaYce making: Naturally Designing Outside the Catalog”.  This informative presentation discussed how the key to a successful project is determined before the first shovel gets near the site. It’s all in the planning.

“We need to understand the site, the community’s culture, and how we can enhance the play experience through natural elements,” says Marie-Catherine. “We’ve found that water can elevate the play experience and plays a critical role in appealing to users of all ability levels.”

“We also need to consider the health, safety, and welfare of all users,” adds Zak. “We want our projects to accommodate a multi-generational audience so that everyone benefits from a community play space. It’s a lot more than picking components out of a catalog.”

This amazing conference brought together play researchers, parks/rec personnel, educators, health scientists, landscape architects, designers, planners, business and community leaders, psychologists, physicians and parents and we were very excited to be a part of it!
