JBHM’s Land Planning Group has designed the latest and most state-of-the-art playground in Mississippi. The “terrapin,” is green and tan with a soft, rubberized shell. The rubberized surface provides a protective surface for children and absorbs water that is then pulled by gravity to one of four drainage pipes. A system of sunscreens above the central play area provides shade that lowers the temperature 20 degrees. The area also swings, benches and picnic pavilions on the one-acre park.
