Not Back to School

New Playground

My oldest was invited to a kid advisory workshop for the designing of the new playground in the area.  The city is redesigning one of their parks.  They are expanding the park by closing some roads and redirecting traffic, relocating the playground, and adding a splash pad!  The old playground has already been demolished.  They are supposed to be building a separate playground for the toddlers and another for the older kids.  The old playground was just one huge playground, with a few swings for the little ones.  The little ones could walk around the playground but it is difficult for anyone older than a teenager to walk around with them.  I am excited to see their final choices!

The happy and sad faces were for the kids to hold up when shown pictures of park designs.
