A Free Pop-Up Playground for Kids on the High Line

If you have kids, you know creativity, active playing, and free thinking are all crucial elements for developing minds. Imagination Playground, built on this idea, will be on the High Line this Saturday. It's a great chance for kids to play in a whole new way!

Here's how it works. "Imagination Playground in a box" will arrive at the park as a kit of giant foam blocks, mats, wagons, fabric, crates, and other materials. Kids are then invited to use the objects to dream up their own playground — and then build it. It's an excellent way to encourage creativity and activity, and promises to be a lot of fun.

"Imagination Playground in a box" was designed by architect David Rockwell, and is offered free on the High Line thanks to a partnership with KaBOOM!
