Subject: Natural Play Spaces at Brown Street Park

Wendy,

 I was on the website today and notice the blog about natural play spaces for children. it reminded me of an article I read in the Arbor Day foundations newsletter about natural play spaces for children. I will scan it and send ti to you but in the mean time, here is their website-

I am sending this to you because I am thrilled with all of the work you have done at BSP. Although my kids and I don't get there often we always have a great time when we are there. In light of redesigning the older and younger children's play spaces, I thought this article and the Arbor Day's information about natural play spaces might be interesting and helpful.
