Sunshine Playscape

Welcome to the new world of playgrounds!

Well, it isn’t really “new,” in fact, the Sunshine Playscape at the North Pond Nature Sanctuary is all about getting back to basics. For many of us,  our fondest childhood memories that center around play, are rooted in the freedom of exploring the outside world. In those unsupervised moments of watching a bird build a nest, jumping in a pile of autumn leaves, or chasing fireflies in those precious few minutes before sunset and then taking them home in a jar.


Help Us Change The Way Children Play

We invite you to partner with us on this exciting and much-needed park amenity. Medical research has found that regular exposure to outdoor nature settings can reduce ADHD symptoms, increase standardized test scores, improve critical thinking, and reduce stress, anxiety and depression. It’s not bad for parents and grandparents either! Flip through these pages and remember the world of outdoor play.

Your donation allows us to purchase or create the unique play components you are about to see. All donors who adopt a playscape component will be recognized on one donor recognition plaque located in the Lincoln Park Conservancy’s new Sunshine Playscape.
