Tonight I went for a walk around my favorite neighborhood park and got to see all of the amazing work being put into Westmoreland’s Natural Playground!
This exciting new space is part of Portland Park and Recreation’s Nature-Based Play Initiative pilot program whose goal is to “create settings in developed parks that encourage creative play and interaction with natural features.”
Sand, rocks, logs, and water are amongst the many elements going into this play area located just one block from our school. We couldn’t be happier to have a safe place to explore and create with our students. Nature walks and fairy gardens here we come!
Visit the Westmoreland Park Nature Play website for more info on the progress of this awesome new playground.
