Fund the Nature Play Space in Gompers Park
Help make the dream of bringing a Nature Play Space to Little Gompers come true! A Planning Committee was formed by interested community members 3 years ago to bring this new amenity to the park. Through hard work, the application was approved two years ago and a grant was awarded to start the process. Recently, the community came together to vote on the design and elements they would like to have included in it. Fundraising efforts have been ongoing, but more is needed to bring this amenity to its completion.
What is Nature Play and how does it benefit children? A Nature Play Space is a location where children can play in a more diverse and creative way. They are given the opportunity to engage in independent play activities where they create their own challenges, develop skills in problem-solving and teamwork while using imaginative play that is open-ended and unstructured. It also aids in the development of social skills, language and promotes physical development.

This would be such a fabulous addition to the neighborhood. Right now my kids and I travel to other neighborhoods to enjoy nature play spaces and having one in our community would be so awesome!!
Outdoor play is how children's brains best develop. This would be an amazing resource to have all year long!
My family lives right down the street from Eugene Field Park, and my two year old is always so much more engaged when we go to the natural play space than the traditional playground. I would not have imagined it, but the difference in how he plays at each park is really striking, and I would love nothing more than to see an additional natural play space in the area for us to go to!
Is this project up as a proposal for the current participatory budgeting cycle? It seems to have been funded through a previous cycle, does it require further funding? If so, is it automatically accepted because it was previously funded? Lot of questions when there is only one project on the list that is already accepted.
