Intelligently Designed Nature

By: Mr. Wilson on May 14, 2009
I know what they're going for, but I still think it sounds funny that there needs to be a planning open house for a "natural" play area in Belmont Park. Can you plan a natural space? In any event, there's some validity to the notion that most kids don't spend enough time interacting with nature. And no, picking a lone dandelion in an otherwise immaculate yard doesn't count. The Wilsons don't need a "natural" play area. We live very close to Beal Slough, the creek that runs along much of Highway 2. It's a perfect play area, and it has the benefit of not having been planned as a play area. What other areas in town are excellent "natural" play areas? Wilderness Park and portions of Pioneers Park are obvious candidates, as is Tierra Park. Any others?


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

The little park in Woodshire is a hidden natural play area.

I used to live near 27th & Fletcher along Salt Creek.  It was fun to wander back there & spot deer.  Unfortunately, there was quite a bit of litter that I suspect blew there.
