Our Mother of Consolation Parish School

The Collaborative prepared a multi-faceted plan for outdoor learning and play, using part of an existing parking lot. A nature play hill, playing field, and play structure borrow their organic shapes from waterways and forests. Six rain gardens are strategically placed to capture stormwater runoff. A pergola provides a transition between indoors and outdoors, and an outdoor garden workshop complements an existing greenhouse.
