Gehry Loves the Kids

DNAinfo has more details (but no renderings, sadly) of Frank Gehry's planned playground near Battery Park, first announced in 2007. The Battery Playspace will feature "Gehry's trademark twisted metal" in the form of three tall slides, a small amphitheater and a birdhouse-like structure (for humans!). The $10 million(!) playground could be ready in 2012. Will it be more popular with FiDi youngsters or old architecture nerds? [DNAinfo]
