LAKEFRONT AMPHITHEATER Users travel to lakefront amphitheater for shows, fireworks, and events. In addition to other open space activities.
WESTMINSTER CITY PARK CHILDREN GARDEN AND AMPHITHEATER Group project to create master plan, then divided into smaller individual parts for further development. Big Idea: Sustainability will be a guideline to create an innovative and educational section of the park. Location: Westminster City Park, CO
Challenges: Youth sports dominate space Softball field inaccessible when not in use, 8 months out of the year Few activity spaces Big wide open space Lacking visual cues to draw users deeper into park Narrow age appeal
Innovative Solution Individual Master Plan:
Redefine traditional form of playground structure Foster education and cooperative sense for early child education in the playround Propose a lakefront amphitheater with integrated food kiosks Recycled plastic bottles to build interactive splash park
CONTEXT IN TEAM MASTER PLAN
SPLASH PARK CHILDREN GARDEN A cohesive integrated space of splash park and playground.The playground consists of a trampoline and bubble cave, there are also climbing islands for children to climb and interactive play.
CHILDREN GARDEN AND LAKEFRONT AMPHITHEATER
SPLASH PARK The splash park is an innovative structure for children learn to play with water, as well as learn to cooperate with their peers. Water flows through the whole structure with the roof creating screens, as well as mist effects. Automatic sensors on both structure facades will splash water rhythmically when the bottle-like structures completely fill with water. Shade trees on the perimeter allow parents to sit and watch children in the park.

ISLANDS IN SPLASH PARK
LAVA CAVE When children jump on the trampoline above, the shock from the trampoline creates a bubbling effect similar to a lava lamp. When young kids are inside the space, they are surrounded by the colorful bubbles. There is also a track inside for children to play cars. The structure is made of clear recycled plastic allowing light into the space and parents to view children inside.
