A neighborhood first! The communities around George and Sitton schools have been busy designing beautiful installations in which kids can PLAY on the way to school! With the help of a grant called Kaboom: The Play Everywhere Challenge, various installations such as community kiosks that include toy sharing, learning musical instruments, and puzzles! These will also serve as gathering places for walking school buses, scavenger hunts, school pick ups and more! On the walking route to Sitton School, The FIRST EVER Cookie Tree is being installed in just outside of Pier Park. This mural as well as the ideas that lead to the kiosks are kid-friendly because they were designed all by kids! Keeping the PLAY alive in the tippy-top gorgeous N end of St. Johns.
