Our outdoor playground is ready for little ones to play on. At this time, we ask parents and caregivers to help keep the gravel in its own area. It can be a hazard when placed on the blue flooring area, especially when on an incline. We hope you enjoy the benefits to the outdoor playground such as exploration, fresh air and free play.
