We will explore the vibrant, accessible playground, ringed by complementary active program and experiences, including a wetland overlook, a unique 48-foot-long community table that fosters social interaction, and an accessible wetland boardwalk enhanced with art which connects to the Cross Kirkland Corridor. LAC ES credits will be offered for the walking tour.
