Natural Playground Construction Underway

Natural Playground Construction Underway

The Wildwood School Natural Playground is getting real! Crews from Natural Playgrounds Company broke ground on the project in July and are now starting to install the various features, which will include a slide, climbing wall, sand play area and lots more. The wooden structures shown in the photos are the climbing walls; pegs will eventually be installed for hand and foot grips. Watch for further updates soon!

In addition to the climbing wall, the rocks to the left in this photo will be incorporated into the natural play space.

Would you like to be part of this legacy project for our community’s schoolchildren? MAGI is helping bring the new playground to life by raising funds to incorporate trees and shrubs into the design. Learn more and contribute to the “Plant a Tree, Grow a Playground” project here.
