Meramec State Park Playgrounds

DG2 Design collaborated closely with Missouri State Parks staff to design two new playgrounds at Meramec State Park: the Day Use Playground and a more intimate campground playground. Over the course of a year, the design process involved coordination with cultural resources to protect sensitive areas known for historical artifacts. The Day Use Playground features a bay of swings, a disk swing, a long seat wall for relaxation and observation, and a large play structure with multiple climbing points and a slide. Additionally, the park now offers extra parking, a wheelchair-accessible walkway, and an updated basketball court. The campground playground includes a smaller climbing structure with multiple slides, a viewing scope, and swings.
