Join Fairytale Town for a day celebrating play at the future home of the Sacramento Adventure Playground. Children and adults will work together to create their own play structures and spaces by re-purposing everyday items such as cardboard boxes, tubes, pipes, wood, magazines, household wares, natural elements, and unexpected items such as colorful fabric and old computer keyboards.
The Pop-Up Adventure Playground is based on the concept of Adventure Playgrounds in Europe. After World War II, landscape and playground architects noticed that children spent more time playing in the war rubble than they did in structured playgrounds. They observed that children were more engaged in play in spaces they created themselves and thought that these non-traditional environments inspired imaginative, collaborate and thoughtful play.
Note: Families are requested to wear closed-toe shoes and clothes that can get messy. The event will take place rain or shine.
