ECO-RECREATION STATION - SEASIDE
The new Roberts Lake Eco Recreation Station opened to the public this past July with a Ribbon Cutting ceremony attended by locals and children from a local summer camp. The project features a nature-themed playground and an outdoor classroom that will be used to teach kids about ecology. The pieces selected for the project come from our Norleg line of products which are known for their unique, natural looking play equipment. The outdoor classroom programs will be designed to educate people on issues like water conservation, water ecology, and water quality. The City of Seaside, in partnership with Sustainable Seaside, was selected as a Building Better Communities grant recipient from the American Water Charitable Foundation and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) which helps local communities develop environment-based educational play opportunities. These types of play spaces can foster an appreciation for environmental stewardship while providing opportunities for physical activity.
