2018 Diamond Award Recipient
Village of Port Jefferson, NY
The subject property is an existing 4,000 SF playground built in the mid-1970s located about 750 feet from the Port Jefferson Harbor, in the Village of Port Jefferson (Port Jeff). Port Jeff is a historic shipbuilding village on the north shore of Long Island in the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, New York.
Years of neglect and vandalism left the park in need of a full makeover. The new design was focused on increased accessibility for all kids, using an Inclusive Play Design while encouraging children of all ages to engage in meaningful play. LKMA was the sole engineering consultant, site survey and proposed schematic site plans were developed for this project.
