The Baobab Tree and Adinkra Fence are two of artist Andrew F. Scott's wonderful contribution to the Kwanzaa Playground. The playground sits in the Old Town East neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio.

According to Scott's artist site: "The Kwanzaa playground was developed in 1995 as a joint effort between the community and the City of Columbus. Seven local artists and sculptors contributed the design and construction. The park is designed in the shape of a human which represents a first ancestor. The park focuses on positive African-American images based on the concept that 'It takes a whole village to raise a child.' "
