Lenox Hill, Phase II


Highview Creations completed a "playscape" roof garden intended for the young residents of the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House in Manhattan. The playscape includes elements to promote creative play, team building, and learning, but also encourages an interactive experience with nature. In addition to native plantings, our team designed a sensory garden, grass mounds, a cascading water-wall, play tunnels, and climbing vines. During the peak of the summer, elements of the playscape resemble a beautiful jungle. The playscape roof garden was awarded the "Good Stewardship Award" by the Friends of the Upper East Side Organization in 2017.
