Project Approach

The new outdoor recreation and educational space at Andy Woods Elementary is a thoughtfully designed environment that seamlessly combines active and passive play areas. Rooted in scientific research, each zone serves to promote the physical, cognitive, and emotional development of every student. This space has been crafted to meet varied needs and interests. By offering diverse opportunities for both recreation and education outdoors, the project aims to enhance mental well-being, information retention, and holistic growth for all its young learners.

My kids are in highschool, but they would have loved having something like this as a kid in school. What a awesome space to learn and play!

I have 2 kids at Woods (1st and 3rd grade) and am really excited about the potential with this project. My kids specifically look forward to the ninja course and the shaded reading areas. I look forward to seeing the improvements in the next few years.
