Merit Award

Bushnell Park Playground

Hartford, CT

The original playground in historic Bushnell Park was erected in 1999, but was removed in 2016 due to safety concerns.  The playground was replaced in 2018.

For two years, Lisa Karam and the Bushnell Park Foundation worked on a fundraising campaign, raising $450,000 to replace the playground, with the City contributing $200,000.  To Design was engaged as the landscape architect due to their extensive City of Hartford park experience.  John Hollerbach of Creative Recreation, LLC designed the one-of-a-kind playground, mimicking the historic park's features, and was also responsible for construction.  Hartford's Planning and Zoning Commission also contributed to the design.
