Rainbow Lake Playground


ANF Architects reimagined and renovated the Rainbow Lake Playground at Overton Park.

ANF uses an "edge of the woods" design concept to enliven and expand Overton Park's existing playground near Rainbow Lake. Work includes an earth mound with hollow tree trunk tunnel and slide, wooden climbing platforms and accessible inclines, cargo net "spider web" climbing structure, self-propelled merry-go-round, sculptural pea gravel noisemakers, natural material building area, drum circle, chess tables, and new swing sets. Benches, picnic tables and trash & recycling centers are installed. A new fence surrounds the playground.
