44 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Alga Norte Park in Carlsbad, Calif., has two age-appropriate playgrounds (2-5 years old and 5-12 years old). All the playground equipment and the safety surfacing are universally accessible. There are three types of swings, a modern version of monkey bars, dual slides, platforms and colorful shade fabrics abounding. According to Shade Structures of Costa Mesa, Calif., the air circulating through the polyethylene mesh fabric can reduce temperatures beneath the structures by as much as 30 percent. Lighting for the playgrounds and dog park is LED. Photos: KtU+A
