Avon Public School in Stratford, Ontario, the home of the Stratford Festival, received help from many community organizations to build a dream playground for its students. The school playground design includes a wide range of features, from a timber tower to an outdoor amphitheatre in the spirit of Stratford theatre as well as a log jam®, hill slide and play hut for the youngest students.
The full site design includes large expanses of no-mow zones where the lawn mower will stay away to allow for a wildflower garden to flourish. Crawl tunnels, sand play opportunities and climbing features round out the playscape’s opportunities for imaginative and diverse play at this large school site.
