Jardincito Nature Play Garden

posted Oct 26, 2016, 9:15 AM by Mr Sidarous

The Jardincito, located at 23rd and Whipple, is a place where young children can play in and explore nature right in their own neighborhood. Rather than the traditional swings and slides, there are features borrowed from the natural world: an earthen mound, balancing logs, a herd of boulders, a pebble pool, a play deck, and play huts. CLHS was instrumental in the creation of this space and continues to be involved with the operation of the garden. Students from Spry Elementary, particularly Pre-K students, regularly use this space.
