This field note reviews the immediate and wider significance of a neighbourhood playground built in 1990 by the local community from a deprived area of Tel-Aviv, Israel in partnership with its municipality. The success of the project is manifest in its continued use, upkeep and maintenance by the local community, and in recent moves by the city of Tel-Aviv to extend the initiative in conjunction with local schools, in an attempt to foster children's involvement with, and care for, their immediate environment.
