Playground Update!

October 09, 2013

It’s only 17 days until Build Day at the Belding-Garcia Playground in Richmond, CA! If you’re wondering what we’re talking about check out this old post: http://livieandlucablog.com/?p=972

This community playground will be built in ONE day so there is a lot of prep work to be done to make sure things go smoothly on October 26th.

Last week some of us from Livie & Luca went to visit the playground during the demolition to solidify details of the build and to talk about side projects. These side projects include: a Tot Lot (sandbox area with playhouse and water area), a seating wall made of wood logs, a skate park, a central picnic plaza with BBQ and picnic tables, and a re-purposed entryway (see pic below of the old structure – we are going to put legs on it, repaint it, and plant vines next to it to grow up and over!)

In true L&L fashion we are going to paint the pathway surrounding the park and brighten up the surface of the skate park with a checkerboard print!

These are all in addition to the big projects such as the play structures and adjacent futsol court.

Here in the office we had a Craftermorning with the Richmond City officials and some of the community members who live in the neighborhood where the playground is being built. We made a fun fabric barricade out of old T-shirts that we’ll be using along with caution tape for the official construction site.

Halloween is just around the corner! Rather than making your way to the big Halloween superstore and spending an absurd amount of money on some superhero-inspired scraps of polyester, why not do things a little differently this season! Inspired by our most beloved shoes, we’ve created some memorable costumes that are as simple to make as […]
