The Indigo Playgrounds created by the design Firm Ballistic Architecture Machine, also known as BAM, is a multi-functional outdoor experience designed to suit the needs of children from two different age levels.

The first play structure is covered by discs which cast playfully checkered shadows over the park. Inside children can choose from dozens of play pieces, and equipment and are invited to invent their own games on the crescent-like orange hill situated in the center of the space. This park is ideal for children between the ages of 2-7. More adventurous children over the age of 8 are welcomed to further into the park which features "an array of pipes, climbing holds, and climbing rope offer children a range of challenges to reach the peak. A nest-like lookout on top of the peak features two white marble slides for express routes down the mountain."

The Indigo Playground's concept of playful and interactive architecture showcases the role urban design plays in community building.
