Schroering Forest Playground Grand Opening
The completion of the Schroering Forest Playground will further the Greenway’s mission by uniting families with outdoor recreation opportunities for all ages. It will offer a natural play environment that both members and visitors may use throughout the year.
Thanks to vision and funding from private donors, Marty and Vesime Schroering, Greenway staff worked with the Natural Learning Initiative (NLI), to plan a natural play space specially designed to:
- Activate sensory skills
- Foster creativity and problem solving through free play
- Reduce stress
- Increase physical activity
- Develop confidence in the outdoors
- Improves cognitive abilities, including but limited to academic performance and social emotional intelligence
- Facilitate outdoor learning.
