The Natural Playground at WBUUC is a project that was generously sponsored and built by members of WBUUC– from our “treasure island” sandbox, to the chimes and the bee hive climbing structure, volunteers at WBUUC have lovingly created this space to help create a welcoming and safe space for our children and families.
This natural playscape contains natural elements such as sand, wood, and living plants; it is a learning landscape of sensory stimuli where our children can learn through open—ended free play and by interacting in nature. It truly is an outdoor classroom with spaces to encourage imaginary play, exploration, free expression, and build problem-solving skills for kids of a wide range of ages and abilities.
Our natural playground also offers the children of our community an opportunity to intentionally build the next generation of our earth’s stewards by connecting our children with nature through play. It’s safe with few moving parts, sustainable, and has a low carbon footprint.
