Could they just use that same material that’s in the LotD’s water park and the Forest of Fun playground? I’m not sure what it’s called, but it‘s colorful, almost kind of “soft”
Edit: This material is also underneath that pile of eggs that kids can climb inside (though I can’t remember if those eggs are still there or not).

^ It's often called "Pour 'n Play". Little Tykes uses it on a lot of playgrounds. It is also porous, which would allow rainfall through. Plus, it comes in colors. I'm thinking new sponsorship ideas. "Your logo here"

That would be a good solution in functionality, but I think it would clash with the overall design of the area.

The previous stone/dirt was fitting in nicely, but wasn't very erosion proof. (especially with kids digging for rocks)

Wouldn't be surprised they could find the right color. Of course, could always just keep replenishing small stones as they are.

Here's a nice photo of Aquitaine before the breezeway closest to the tower was widened. Note the shop on the left which no longer exists.

This photo was pulled from an eBay listing (from user mainely-antiques) for an old piece of BGW/KD marketing material. If you're interested in buying the original copy, it's for sale here:

They haven't done much with this as I took a couple of pics a good week ago (didn't post them) from the same angles and in comparing them nothing has really changed.

Only thing that could improve it now is changing those rinky dink gray tables out for some gas firepits to sit around.
