Progress on Children's Nature Play Area
We are excited to report that progress is being made on the children's nature play area. The area has been designed by Kirstin Bouwsema. The main components of the area - two very large rocks - were kindly donated by the Ball family. Rob and Charlie Ball hauled the rocks over to the site, where they were then placed in the play area by Wayne Froese using a zoom boom.
We are excited that this area - funded by a TD Friends of the Environment grant - will provide children with the opportunity to experience nature through creative play.
