Support Our Playground Fund
Woodcock Nature Center has partnered with Christopher Gray of Graywoods Design to upgrade our play structures using red cedar harvested from our grounds. This playscape is the only one of its kind in Ridgefield and Wilton. It allows children to enliven play and engage creatively with nature.
The first phase of the new playground is complete (see above)! It incorporates a tamarack climbing platform and Woodcock’s popular rope “spider web” (salvaged from the original structure).
Trassig Playgrounds has provided pro-bono consulting which will help us to make sure the final space meets national play and safety code requirements (from ground materials to safe distances between play elements).
Special thanks to Horseshoe Farm in Ridgefield for building new fencing around the space.
Thank you to Christopher Gray for his generous pricing!
The design plan for the natural play space allows for us to add features as we fundraise:
3 Tiered Climbing Deck COMPLETE
14 Foot Wobbly Bridge COMPLETE

Playhouse with Open Half Walls $1,500 - PARTIALLY COMPLETE

With your support all of these elements will be funded and built this year!
Please consider a generous donation to our playground fund.
Gifts $500 and over will be uniquely acknowledged in the final play space!
