Concept Plan

We’re having fun incorporating natural and engaging play features to keep the little ones active. Some of these features include stumps, logs, and boulders for hopping, climbing, and balancing, a sand and water play area, playhouses and play equipment for sliding, spinning, climbing, and running, a pollinator garden and vegetable garden, eating areas, and an artificial turf amphitheater for outdoor learning.

With a fire lane taking up almost half the site, we wanted to incorporate a colorful painting scheme on the existing asphalt paving in order to expand the kids play space. The painting features a colorful trike path which winds through the Kinder Yard. The flowers, bees, butterflies, ladybugs, and dragonflies are a fun element to help the kids learn more about pollinators.
