JRA was challenged to create an environment that stimulated children’s imaginations in a fully enclosed, state-of-the-art, park-like setting. “A Day in the Park with Barney” was designed as a place where children could do more than just meet the purple dinosaur. Children participate in an environmental theater filled with brilliantly colored flora, trees and indoor clouds and stars. Outside the theater are several play and learning areas for children and their parents.
