4 thoughts on “Town Plans Waveny Playground and Fitness Area for Spring ‘24

  1. I think this is an excellent idea. I totally agree with the “greens, browns, grays” color scheme. Although kids like bright colors, they would be in stark contrast to the beauty of the house and park.

  2. Has anyone on the committee looked at constructing a Nature’s Playground such as the ones in Europe and in Portland, OR, which has several, notably Westmoreland Park? https://www.google.com/search?q=natures+playground+portland+or&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari#vhid=wLv2qSfkkcWBMM&vssid=l Such playgrounds are constructed of logs and rocks and would be in keeping with the park setting.

    It gives the children the feeling of playing in the woods and encourages cooperative play as well.

    I’d love to contribute to something more natural and which would be both unique and popular.

  3. Ms. Chapman’s recommendation for a Nature’s Playground has more positive opportunities for children to safely play while it fits into Waveny’s natural environment. Replacing items as needed could be less expensive than proposed equipment. Preventing “out-siders” from crowding the area (and this will surely happen just as “outsider” dog walkers use the trails) sell passes only to local residents. Entrance would be at a gate like the Dog Park.
