comes from the “nature deficit disorder”. Kids are not playing outside as much as when we were younger and a playscape of this nature encourages kids to get outside and enjoy nature. The playscape was built to include a tree house, a rock climbing wall and sandbox as some of the features. The playscape was funded by private donations and the tree house at the playscape was named after Katie Lunn who was killed in an accident in 2010.
