The nautically themed playground at the America’s Cup Village could be moving to the Botanical Gardens.

The 30ft by 65ft playground, designed by Austrian company Arti, has been a big hit with visitors. It features equipment including rocking “catamarans”, climbing nets and balance stations.

According to documents released by the Department of Parks, the equipment would be installed northeast of the Parks Office building.

Unlike at the event village, the equipment would be placed in a sand pit at the gardens.
