项目概况 Project overview
As the concept of child-friendly community has been put into practice, building child-friendly community has become one of the effective ways to improve the healthy growth environment of children. This project is part of the module design for a child-friendly community, transforming the fitness park of the original community into a creative children’s park and comprehensive facilities, which reflects the concept of community construction gradually paying attention to the healthy growth environment of children. The design aims to unify the building with the surrounding community environment and create a friendly community atmosphere. The children’s park is located in the southeast corner of the Third Community, Xin ‘an Huayuan, Xinwu District, Wuxi city. The original simple and forgettable corner space is transformed into a public open space for children to play, parent-child interaction and people to rest by the eye-catching facilities and unique geometric dimension.

设计概念：纽带乐园 Design concept: Bond Paradise
In order to truly integrate the concept of building a kid-friendly community into the space design of the community and children’s daily life, the original fitness park was transformed to integrate children’s entertainment facilities and public gathering space, creating an extremely creative open space. The children’s park is built around the open space in the center of the site. Inspired by the bond, the Spaces of different functions are connected in an orderly way, presenting a unique spatial rhythm，and providing an outdoor gathering place for children facing the community.

根据实地考察，选定原健身公园中间空地作为儿童游乐公园，其他地方保留其原有功能。如总平面图所示，树 A 到树 B 的距离经过实地测量为13.5米。树之间为两个相对的圆形，一侧作为0-6岁儿童适用的游乐区，一侧作为6-12岁儿童适用的游乐区。同时，以树为中心设置两个凉亭休憩区。公园的设计以动静结合为原则，每一个圆形的区域都兼顾了游乐与休憩功能。同时，设计与保留的自然景观形成动静对比，也成为了描绘友好社区界面的一抹色彩。设计依照儿童与儿童、家长与儿童之间的体量关系预留足够的空间，即使大人与儿童的尺度相互交错，两个群体也都能够在空间中进行互动。
According to the field investigation, the space in the middle of the original fitness park was selected as the children’s amusement park and the other places retained their original functions. As shown in the master plan, the distance from tree A to tree B was measured in the field at 13.5 meters. There are two opposite circles between the trees. One side serves as a recreation area for children aged 0-6 years and the other side serves as a recreation area for children aged 6-12 years. At the same time, there are two gazebo rest areas centered around the trees. The design of the park is based on the principle of dynamic and static combination, and each circular area gives consideration to the functions of recreation and rest. At the same time, the design contrasts with the preserved natural landscape and becomes a distinct feature to describe the friendly community interface. The design leaves enough space in accordance with the volumetric relationship between children and parents, so that both groups can interact in the space even though the scales of adults and children are staggered.

Strategic organization: Children’s involvement
Before the specific design scheme is generated, the designers cooperate with the community involve the community children in the design of the child-friendly community for a four-week interactive workshop, which provides a representational surreal scene. The children brainstormed how to plan community Spaces, playrooms and roads, imagining the possibilities of the space and using their intuition to create countless ways of playing method. At the same time, the designer worked with the children to build models, consciously adding interesting shapes and varied structural forms to the space. The result is a complex, diverse and childlike place. The project expresses their suggestions and demands for improvement of specific places in the community from the perspective of children, and further cultivates the ability of community children to pay attention to public issues and participate in public affairs so as to shoulder social responsibilities. Truly from the perspective of children, children’s participation to promote the overall development of the whole child friendly community construction projects.

Design content: functional compound
In order to create a space for children to grow freely and increase the participation of community residents, several activity Spaces are interspersed in the design of the whole children’s park. At the same time, the children in the community are divided into two age groups: 0-6 years old and 6-12 years old. According to the needs of different age levels, activity facilities are set up to form exclusive areas. Cartoon seats and adult seats are arranged around to form a reasonable children’s amusement space. The various functions of the fixed space, such as open reading corners, multi-functional pavilions, and various recreational facilities, are fully considered to provide a free and cheerful environment for children to grow and learn.

Reading corner, a quiet resting place specially designed for children aged 6-12, is constructed by combining geometric elements and creating a quiet corner.
The community where children play every day is the extension of extra-curricular life and the poetic expression of natural context. The humane child-friendly community helps us slow down and grow with the community, creating richer childhood memories.
