Celebrating Our New Playground
A dream come true for us:
The turf lawn is already here, and building is underway: the new play space at our School Street location will be open soon!
We are very excited to introduce our new expandable outdoor space. We like to think of it as more than a playground: it is a totally unique space that utilizes all of our outdoor space. Let me explain: in years past, we struggled to grow grass in the front and sides of our building to give the kids a place to run. And for years, they ran around and went home dirty or muddy. That is about to change…
Soon – very soon – our kids will have access to the new turf lawn (no more dirt and mud!), along with the play areas that have been designed with different age groups in mind. We have chosen structures specifically for the younger and older children. The younger kids will have a play space with a standing rocker, a crawl tunnel, a slide, and a storefront for creative outdoor play. For the older kids, we chose a helix climber (climbing wall), a climbing net, and the “Comet”, which is a spinning structure.
The design includes a sprinkler system to offer outdoor water play in the warmer weather, as well as added fencing to not only enclose the space, but also increase the usable area in the front and on the sides of the building.
We can’t wait for opening day. Stay tuned: we will shout it from the playground as soon as we are up and running!
