Playground Design Contest

Playground Logo_Updated
The submission deadline for the Playground Design Contest has now passed. Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit their design(s)! We look forward to making an announcement on our top three winners during Art Month in August. Stay tuned for more details!

It’s time to stir up your creative juices, watch your imagination soar, let your adventurous hair down…you get the picture. The City of Duluth is hosting a design contest for visionaries and creators of all ages and skill levels.

Your goal is to inspire the next piece of playable art in Downtown Duluth. What is playable art you ask? Well, imagine sliding down the arm of a giant robot or climbing the spiral staircase of a mystical tree house. You could even pilot your own flying car…in theory. In other words, this playground isn’t going to be your typical slide, swings and monkey-bars combo. We want you to use your wildest imagination to help us create a lasting, out-of-this-world piece of Duluth’s landscape.

Do you want to see a dinosaur on the Green? Draw it! Maybe you want to captain a pirate ship? Paint it! Or maybe you don’t think we have enough dragons around here? Sketch it! Want to dive to the depths in a submarine? Design it! You’re only limited by your imagination (and a little by our rules). Have fun!
