Pine River Library Park Groundbreaking and Pop-up Playground

The Bayfield Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with Groundwork Studio Landscape Architects provided a unique opportunity for children to build their own playground. Hosted at the Pine River Library on May 20, the parking lot was transformed into a temporary Pop-Up Playground. Over 100 children collaborated and created tunnels, forts, teepees and murals – and then enthusiastically took them all apart! As research for the Town of Bayfield Parks, Open Space, Trails and Recreation Master Plan, participants were asked to complete surveys.
