At the daycare facility, playgrounds emphasizes the concept of “nature play.” The intent is to provide a therapeutic play setting for children to explore their natural surroundings through imaginative and physical play. The playground features a butterfly and hummingbird garden as well as a hands-on vegetable garden. The vegetable garden is part of a curriculum designed to encourage healthy eating.
The project integrated the work of artist Virginia Fleck as part of Austin’s Art in Public Places program.
