MILLS BRANCH PARK • Kingwood, Texas

The one acre park was one of the few remaining wooded sites within the New Town of Kingwood. The design used existing clearings to locate play areas and create a unique "playground in the woods." It uses standard play equipment but in unique way, such as a sliding board that is embedded within a large mound. The Tot Lot has its own mound/sliding board and is defined by a "crazy fence" that darts in and out of the trees, creating its own sense of play. Parents can enjoy their own relaxation under the shading pergola in the porch swing. Kathy Poole at The SWA Group, Inc. Kevin Shanley, Project Manager.
