Children who are in preschool and day care at the Mount's Children's Center have a new play area that will be dedicated on Friday, April 25 at a reception from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The new space will be a "natural playscape" which consists of a playground with as few man-made components as possible. It features plants, boulders for climbing, sandpits, and other natural elements designed to allow children to explore nature.

The dedication event will feature a grill out, a bouncy castle for children, a Kona Ice truck, and a blessing of the new playground. All are welcome to stop by.
