Built to traverse a wetland, this boardwalk reaches across the soggy ground and playfully interacts with large native highbush blueberries and large boulders (existing). It was built for easy berry picking, and leads with intrigue to dry land beyond. Although not originally conceived as a play structure kids seem to love running, biking and playing on it. A delightful unintended result!
The materials included a structural plastic lumber frame with locally harvested 2x6 White Cedar decking on top.
