Terrapin Park Playground

Brandon, MS

Project Description

JBHM’s Land Planning Group has designed the latest and most state-of-the-art playground in Mississippi.  The “terrapin,” is green and tan with a soft, rubberized shell. The rubberized surface provides a protective surface for children and absorbs water that is then pulled by gravity to one of four drainage pipes.  A system of sunscreens above the central play area provides shade that lowers the temperature 20 degrees.  The area also swings, benches and picnic pavilions on the one-acre park.
