Seger Park Playground

The design of the Seger Park Playground started as a community-led design initiative that evolved into a public/ private partnership between the Friends of Seger Park and the City of Philadelphia. Langan worked with the Department of Public Property and the private, non-profit Friends group to help leverage investments that resulted in a 70% increase in funding for improvements in this historic and beloved public space. Langan also helped facilitate public meetings to gather input, promote funding opportunities, and build a consensus for the park restoration plans. The design preserved historic park elements such as the large London Plane trees and wrought-iron fence while incorporating age-specific playground elements and site features that encourage activity and exploration.
