- Kilburne Grange Adventure Playground
I think this design is particularly brilliant at incorporating the sense of risk, and encouraging risk-taking (love that canted log rope-walk), within a 'safe' structure. Notice also the use of doors as a motif (who doesn't want to open a door into a secret land!) and in the best tradition of repurposed materials on the adventure playground.

- Schulberg Playground
Brilliant! I'm impressed by the way this single structure offers play challenges for all ages. For a playground situated in the city center, architects Annabau designed a continuous climbing structure that winds through existing trees. Twists and height changes of its frame not only increase the play interest, but also respond to the site; creating entrance frames into the interior, space for additional play eqipment like swings, and lookouts that complement the architecture of the center city.

Today you can enjoy an experience of an Elizabethan garden with moats, mounts, terracing and intriguing garden lodge. Period fruit trees recreate what was described as 'one of the fairest orchards in England', and the circular labyrinth reflects Tresham's original garden design. Lyveden is a place where you can relax in peace, explore with the new audio guide or venture further and discover Rockingham Forest. See more at playscapes: http://bit.ly/q2rKqz
