The Johnny Appleseed of the Swing Set

Playground designer Robert Leathers, who has been called “The Johnny Appleseed of the swing set,” works with community members, especially children, to create custom-designed play spaces that are fun and safe for children of all abilities.

His design process is guided by drawings and descriptions created by children during community workshops. For the Indian Boundary Park playground, Leathers and his team incorporated ideas from the drawings and suggestions of hundreds of area children.
