Re-Imagine Our Playground Project, Summer 2017

The sections wrapped in orange caution fence were deemed by NJ Office of Licensing to be inappropriate for the young children in our program. We tried to ignore the fenced-off parts of our climber for four years.

Removing all the temporary barriers we’d installed as part of the KEEP OFF sections. Families helped empty the contents of the storage shed in preparation for having it moved.
