nature playground

As I was driving down the main street of Dundas Ontario, something caught my eye.

There, on the corner of the street, was a fenced area with grass, trees, rocks, logs, wooden chairs and tables and bright, colourful welcoming art.  It beckoned to be explored.

So, Timmie's (Canadian coffee institution) green tea latte in hand, I went exploring.

I found hand carved log chairs

wooden tables and chairs for picnics, projects and deep conversation

movable, create-able obstacle course materials

a hill slide

rocks to climb

and posts for stimulation of imaginative and dramatic play  

What a fabulous space for children to create and build their own play worlds. 

Guess what I want at my school ....
