FM Rotary Natural Playground
The Rotary Foundation of Fargo-Moorhead
~$700,000 Anticipated Construction Cost
This whimsical four-season playground will use boulders, trees, shrubs, logs, rocks and water to provide open-ended, physically challenging and unstructured play opportunities.
The playground will be as enticing for a child to play in as it is aesthetically beautiful to the community, where children will challenge every part of their mind, body and spirit, through play. The natural playground has programmed activities for all seasons of the year and brings fun and enjoyment to long winters. This project also envisions building a bike skills park to instill confidence in children and helps develop balance, strengthens muscles, and the heart and lungs. Bike skills parks are playgrounds for bikers that include a variety of natural obstacles such as rocks and logs, imaginatively created features such as land ladder bridges, teeters, and dirt jumps all collected in a small and easily accessible location.
