Martins Park Boston Ship, USA
Integrative space for natural and imaginative play
Richter's iconic wooden play ship as a landmark
Martin's Park honors the youngest victim of the Boston Marathon bombings, Martin Richard. His family created this city park as an inclusive space for natural and imaginative play. Richter’s iconic Wooden Play Ship stands as a landmark, with two accessible levels, complementing the harborside setting. A slide that is also accessible to wheelchair users and petting stones in the shape of animals, which especially invite small children to role play, round off the range of games for all age groups.
