City for Children playground Basurama from website

Designed by artist collective and upcycle trash enthusiasts, Basurama, this city playscape is all about reusing material. Metal barrels make for visually stunning climbing structures, while soft foam pieces are there for the landing, or a new creation. The only caveat—you’ve got to be a kid (or at least a kid at heart) to play there!
