World’s Coolest Backyard Play Scape!

Recently I visited an amazing house that had an even more amazing play scape in the backyard.  I was told while on the visit that this particular play set was built by a world renown play scape architect…I didn’t even know such a thing existed!!  Anyways, I later found out that this play scape was built by Barbara Butler, and was actually the last play scape that she built on-site.  While she still constructs play scape creations, she now does so through her South San Fransisco Shop and ships them to their destination.  Now, with her team of “play professionals” she creates pre-designed and custom made play houses for lucky kids all over the world.  Sheesh…the only playhouse I ever had was made out of plastic and got blown away by helicopter, but that’s another story.

Tough terrains, challenging spaces, and unusal requests are her specialty, and as you can see from my pictures below, she is great at her job!  This play scape was built to resemble the real house on the propery and includes a jail, 14 foot wavy slide, rock climbing wall, climbing web, fire pole, “turbo slide”, earthquake spring platform, bridges and ramps, and of course swings.  Unfortunately when I was locked in the jail, I did not know there was a secret escape…

I just started eHT in January of 2011, and I'm shocked and humbled that people read it! For some reason it seems like I am always in the most ridiculous situations and witness things only seen in movies, so I like to share my experiences with all of you. Thanks for reading! xo
