Children's Nature Playscape Phase 2 Has Begun!

Help “Set the Stage” for exploration, play, and learning by donating today!

With your help, we completed Phase 1 Construction and transformed reclaimed green space into one of the country's largest natural playscapes in an urban core!

Our Next Milestone

Build an Art & Education Pavilion for special programming and events! This project is part of our Phase 2 Construction Plan, which also includes a Sensory Garden, Chime Fence, Amadinda, Horizontal Tree Climb & Build, and Portland Loo.

Set the Stage for Creative Learning

It's easy to make a tax-deductible donation. Please consider a special year-end contribution of $50, $100, $250, or more to help us reach our goals.
