Children a very creative little people, and love love designing and building gardens that children can play in.  This child friendly landscape is a small installation that has meeting places, tunnels, walkways in a creek-bed setting.  The creek bed also doubles as a natural sand pit.  Below you can see children enjoying the use of natural rocks to make music or stone stacks.  The boat develops creative imaginative play, where children develop their social skills, making it a very child friendly landscape.
