The Children's Nature Playscape on Bronson Park is a project dedicated to turning a current green space downtown into a nature park for the children of Kalamazoo.

The project team is striving to open the playscape soon. Learn more by using the links below.


Children’s Nature Playscape Awarded Grants from Rotary

The grants will provide needed funds for an attractively landscaped fence around the perimeter of the accessible Playscape to ensure the safety of children who will be playing on the many engaging natural play components. Thank you to the Rotary Club of Kalamazoo and the Rotary District 6360 Foundation for their generous support.

Community Art Project 2021

Over the next few months, our community engagement committee will be facilitating the creation of collective art pieces painted by the children of Kalamazoo. Once installed, these art pieces will welcome passersby to the world of imagination and expectation and help us herald in new beginnings on-site. We welcome you to join us!

Update: Community Input Session | May 24, 2021

During our community input session our design team successfully collected survey results that will guide the playscape's final elements and features. As we continue to be creative and make decisions based upon feedback received, we welcome your input, generosity, and encouragement in the days ahead.
