The National Arboretum Playground plays with children's imaginations in an organic way. Taking on the shape of giant acorns, it will make them feel as though they took a magic potion that made them smaller as if in Wonderland. Or perhaps they will pretend to have entered a forest of giants. Either way, the acorns dwarf their already small bodies in an adventurous way.

Designed by Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL), the National Arboretum Playground is located in Australia. Challenging the conventional idea of play environments, it was inspired by the Arboretum’s 100 forests of rare and endangered trees from around the world. According to the designers, it was "designed to creatively engage children with the beauty of trees and foster life-long connections to the remarkable surrounding environment."
