Benning Park Playground

Washington, DC

Long, looping pathways providing accessibility to all sections of the steeply sloping site form a whimsical tangle of brightly-colored dragons at Benning Park Playground. The pathways, in combination with ornamental plantings and bioretention areas, delineate specific activity areas including play, picnic, adult fitness, and walking/running “fitness loop”.
