Nature Play Space

The Horner Park Advisory Council is developing a New Play Space at Horner Park.
We’re seeking additional funds so we can complete the full design concept.
The play space will combine native plantings and natural materials to create an
interactive space for kids to explore, build, learn and play. Please support us!

What is a Nature Play Space?
Nature Play Spaces are places for communities to have positive, hands-on experiences
in nature. They’re designed with elements of nature that can be manipulated and
moved. Each space is a collaborative community effort, unique to the ecology of the site
and the needs of the residents. Designing, planting, building, and caring for a Nature
Play Space is an ongoing creative project.

Where will the Nature Play Space be?
South of the Belle Plaine entrance to the Horner Park parking lot.

When will the project start and how long will it take?
The project already started, but major construction will take place in the summer of 2021. The project will evolve over several years, so it is never completely finished.
