Our newest project is one in which we are very humbled and proud to have played a part. Through the thoughtful gift of a generous donor, we were able to collaborate with Kraftsman Playgrounds to develop a shaded playground and outdoor fitness area for the newly built Samaritan Inn residence campus. Located in Mckinney, Texas, this project opened in the Spring of 2019.
“The Samaritan Inn is more than just a place to spend the night. It is a comprehensive program that teaches self-sufficiency and life skills to meet the needs of individuals and families experiencing homelessness. We help willing people gain dignity and independence. On a given night, approximately 160 people sleep at the Inn, of which 1 of 3 are children.” The Samaritan Inn
The playground was designed as an area for children and families alike to enjoy fun and fresh air outdoors. Since the climate in Texas can be hot during the summer months, we wanted to make sure there was coverage for the children and plentiful seating as well.
Another feature that was included is the outdoor fitness area. This is a wonderful place for guests staying at The Samaritan Inn to come work on their fitness goals while socializing with fellow neighbors and friends.
When designing both features on The Samaritan Inn campus, we wanted to create comfortable and functional spaces for families to feel more at home. These amenities should provide enjoyable use to residents for years to come.
