Asbury Preschool

Asbury Preschool, located in Durham, transformed their play area into a naturalized outdoor learning environment.  They reduced their use zone around existing equipment to add a multipurpose lawn, ornamental grasses, perennials, and a small tree. 

They also removed an existing sand play area, and replaced it with a gravel pathway with a boulder edge, dry stream bed, and bridge.  Additionally, the center has added a raised vegetable garden to increase healthy eating, as well as a low multipurpose deck and custom playhouse for increased dramatic play opportunities.
