Planning, building and making new spaces is super fun and a great way to engage people. After the build is over, then what? Reasons to activate a space:

  • keep it looking good

  • let folks know it is there 

  • let folks know WHAT is in the space

  • why is the space unique to that property

  • use the space to teach a curriculum

  • what cool things can folks learn from the space

  • how can the space be used

At nature+play designs, we are just as excited to help you learn how to use the outdoor spaces to promote play, learning and well-being, as we are in helping get the features in the ground. Learn about the different ways we can support you and your team.
