Additional Information

The Child & Parent Resource Institute provides voluntary services to children and youth with complex mental health and/or developmental challenges to families throughout the Province of Ontario, Canada. In developing a new single building for their aging facilities on their existing campus, Urban Play Studio was hired as landscape architect / play consultant by the lead architect to work with staff and an occupational therapist to develop 4 play and therapy courtyards. Each space was specifically designed per staff specifications to serve various diagnostic and treatment needs for children from 0 to 17 years of age. In addition, diversion spaces, an entry intake courtyard, and a campus site playground with picnic areas, play courts and recreation fields were designed to serve the facility.
