Scope and Content

This project series documents Cornelia Hahn Oberlander's playground project for University Hill Elementary School on Chancellor Boulevard, in University Endowment Lands, Vancouver, British Columbia. Oberlander worked on this project in 1957. She developed her concept for the school play area with a participatory method, asking the children to draw the plants they would like to have included in the landscaping. It consisted in a paved area right at the back of the school, tennis courts to be used for wheeltoys and movable equipment for play, and large lawn area for free play with quiet area to sit. The lawn area includes a play space with logs, rocks, climbing trees and a loghouse situated at the southwest corner of the playground.

The project series contains landscape sketches, design development drawings, landscape plan for the proposal playground, and a presentation panel. The project is also documented through textual records, such as correspondence, research material and press clipping on the school.
