Helmerich Playground re-imagined the way children play at Tulsa Zoo.
While children have a fun-filled time playing and exploring play structures, they
also gain a new level of engagement with the animals that they encounter during their visit. The goal is for this unique playground to use play to create empathy and understanding through shared experiences.
The new playground offers free-play experiences for toddlers and older children in separate, defined areas. To ensure that children of all physical, social and emotional capabilities can participate, inclusion shows in every aspect of design.
