Sunrise School would like to build a community playground! Currently, Sunrise School owns 34 acres of wooded acreage and field. The wooded area is being developed into trails (1/2 mile loop and 1/4 mile loop), learning stations and a pond. The field is open to students/families, a 2 acre community garden and a wildflower plot is being developed to bring honeybees to the area for the garden.

This grant would provide a naturescape playground along the wooded trails. Within the wooded area there is a steep hillside in which a one acre playground would be built, including a naturescape slide built into the hillside, tunnels within, music equipment, swings, balance beams, a commercial playground zip line, and other playground equipment (all detailed within the grant). 

This would become a community park which includes trails, a pond, a garden, learning stations, a pavilion and ultimately a naturescape playground!  This outdoor space would not only provide for the community (which currently has to travel at least 7 miles to a community park outside of their school district), but also for school students' recess, activities and events.

The funding would provide ground prep and naturescape equipment and installation.
