A four foot diameter fir tree was felled, portioned into pieces, peeler and place in the natural play area. The left chunk will be the crawl through 'cub den'. The right chunk will be hollowed out and become the 'bear cave'.
Park staff found just the right root wad for the 'cougar den' and it was placed on site.
Log and rock scramble areas in the Cougar area are underway. Hand holds will be added to the large logs so kids can climb more easily.
YOU ARE INVITED!
The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department has asked ON Play (The Oregon Natural Play Initiative) to host a construction workshop in October. Join us to tour the current construction, talk over the plans, get dirty and build some bird themed features: install a bird blind, plant a ‘bearry garden’, build a nest kids can fit in and many other wild things.
