What is the Sensory Garden Playground?

What’s New?

Accessible Treehouse

While the first phase of the treehouse has been constructed, additional elements are planned as donations to the project make them possible. The site is generally accessible, however, improvements to the accessibility of the treehouse are planned as the project moves forward in the future phase.

Your input and suggestions are welcome as we strive to make this a fun play experience for all.
