We've shown you designs in the past that harness the power of play, but this new concept playground, the Natural Energy Park, brings many kid-powered movements into one fabulous experiential playground to help kids learn about renewable energy first hand. The Natural Energy Park was dreamed up by Hyundai Engineers and Construction designers You Song Young, Jin Soo Yeon, Ahn Ho Sang, and Lee Sung Jae, and it is a Red Dot Design Award winner. Read on to learn more about this kid-powered playground.
The Natural Energy Park is full of green learning opportunities for kids. Power-producing actions include pedaling a bicycle to rotate a pinwheel and illuminate traffic signals and seesawing to turn a waterwheel. Plus kids will also learn about solar, wind and tidal power — all by playing on a playground!
