To commemorate our 50th year, we opened the first toddler playground integrating both inclusive and natural play elements in Minnesota in September 2010.
Designed by Landscape Structures Inc., our new playground is custom designed with every toddler in mind.
- The equipment is specifically for children 16 months to three years, at all stages of physical, cognitive and social development
- The layout provides the perfect balance of open space to run, jump and roll as well as fun play components that provide the "just-right challenge" for everyone
