being a teacher and a parent I know the importance of getting children involved and building a love of nature. Playing in natural spaces allows children to take risks , builds on judgement skills, gross motor skills and so much more. there is lots of research to back this up. Creating a large nature play space with creeks, rocks and trees to climb would be fabulous for our amazing family friendly city. We want our kids to connect to nature so they will take responsibility for it in the future. What better way to do this than create a play space that encourages this.
