Children’s tug boat play area is back on Savannah’s River Street

The beloved Savannah tug boat children’s play area is back on Savannah’s River Street, refurbished and modernized , replacing the original wooden 1977 tugboat, designed by Riverfront Urban Renewal Project architect Eric Meyerhoff. 

The original tugboat, nicknamed “Tinkerbell,” had become dilapidated over the years and had been repaired and rebuilt multiple times until it was removed several years ago for safety reasons. 

The donation of the new ADA accessible tugboat play area is from Margot Meyerhoff, daughter Eric Meyerhoff.  Stephen Nottingham, from Frendesign, modernized the design.
