Dan Daly Playground

Glen Cove, NY

Winner of the AIA NY Chapter Award, this 9000 sq. ft. design uses simple geometric figures and the complex contextual landscape to create a high quality environment with amenities for all ages.

MDSA’s design has incorporated a variety of amenities for all seasons. This includes an assortment of play equipment set in pea gravel, seating and tables with shade provisions, an amphitheatre for story telling, and a water shower located at the apex of the pyramid that sprays into a round pool for the summer.

We accepted the challenge from the Glen Cove Citizens Committee Against Substance Abuse and NY Housing Authority to work economically with no budget to provide the community with this valuable space.
