Today the Portland Plays group pulled off an amazing day of play that included children in the visioning and planning for a playground that will help start the process of breaking the mold of play environments in our community. The people that pulled this day together should be really proud of what they did. The kids had a ball. When I told Ruby it was time to leave she almost cried. We can’t wait to help move this forward. Here’s just a very few pictures. I took hundreds (yes hundreds) but these few give you a sense of the day. There will be a conference at Bernheim this October 4th and 5th that focuses on creating this kind of play environment. Click HERE for details. If we can keep doing what the Portland Plays group did today our community will change for the better.
