Tamarack Nature Center

Tamarack's new 2.5 acre play area, which was designed and built for 2.2 million dollars, still includes the log and stumps but most of it mimics nature with man-made structures designed by MIG, a Berkeley, Calif., deisign firm. Besides the hillside of fake cliffs the area includes greenery, rocks, sticks and sand.  Also a windmill that pumps water into an artificial stream where kids can build dams and play in the wet sand to build whatever comes to their imagination.

Architecture by Partners and Sirny with collaboration by MIG
