The Vancouver Society of Children’s Centres (VSOCC) and Projects in Place Society (PIPS) partnered a second time to redesign and build the outdoor play space at the Vancouver Public Library Children's Centre.
The design focused on several creative play and storytelling features while incorporating concepts of sustainability, food security and environmental conservation. By improving this playground we help introduce children to these important concepts in a fun and interactive setting.
Since this daycare spanned three separate levels, this project was a giant. Our amazing volunteers worked hard all weekend to build a greenhouse, several play structures, a drama stage, a compost station and raised bed planters. The outdoor play space is completely revived and inviting.
"Their passion for greening the inner city has helped develop new opportunities for the residents of the DTES and brought the idea of sustainability to the inner city."
