Jardincito: Sharing the Neighborhood’s Play Garden Dreams

Despite the drizzle, the June 14th Community Canvassing Day for the Jardincito Play Garden at 23rd and Whipple was a success!


Volunteers made face-to-face contacts with over 100 neighbors near the 23rd and Whipple site and distributed flyers announcing the concept of a Nature Play Garden.

Neighbors looked through bilingual “flip books” (pictured, lower left) showing them dozens of options for play garden elements that could be featured at Jardincito: fruit trees, living tunnels, touchable plants, craft projects, and more.


The next step is a Community Design Meeting on Wednesday June 26 from 6:30-8:30pm at Spry Elementary School Library, 2400 South Marshall Blvd. We’ll discuss our findings from outreach day and move forward with planning the play garden.
