The Children's Inn at NIH can now say it features a Play Park designed by an award-winning design firm! Mahan Rykiel Associates (MRA), the design firm for The Children’s Inn at NIH’s Play Park was recognized with an Honor award from the Maryland Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects. The Play Park project involved redeveloping an outdoor space for these patients, their siblings, and caregivers--accommodating active and passive functions, creating enriching play areas for a variety of age groups, and providing respite space for families and staff. “The new play area offers our children and their families a real chance to enjoy the outdoors, and when children have an opportunity to play, they also have an opportunity to heal,” said Kathy Russell, The INN’s CEO.
