Haybales

Over the past month there have been hay bales in the middle of Burke Park.  Our hopes were for people to move and explore different spatial arrangements, play with spaces created by the hay bales, and to see what types of activities that the community did with them.  We found the hay bales in different areas each time we visit the site and saw many different uses including sitting, standing on, jumping, and organizing the hay bales.  The children from Horizons Elementary School enjoyed playing with the hay bales during recess as did the community members.
