Miller Company, Landscape Architects was commissioned by the City of San Mateo to design a new state of the art custom play environment for Beresford Park. The new play area is designed to serve various age groups and is set in a natural environment with internal shade trees and a surround of boulders arranged for scrambling and interactive socializing. Three centrally located rustic wood-clad HAGS climbing towers feature internal nets and timber structures challenging playground users to reach the upper platforms. Stainless steel tube slides wind downward from the HAGS towers to the earth toned resilient surface providing a safe cushion throughout. Monkey bars connect the towers at the ground level. New belt swings are provided for older children. Tot swings, crawl tunnels, climbers and sand and water play scaled for younger users occupy the early childhood age part of the playground.
