n learn, how these natural settings can enhance learning and how these PlayScapes could be opportunities to build stewards of the environment at an early age.

The project is supported with funding from the UC Ada Hart Arlitt Endowment Fund, the UC College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services (CECH), The Procter & Gamble Fund and Zeiser Construction.

Frank Russell, director of the UC Community Design Center and the Niehoff Urban Studio, provided support in the professional development of the architects for the PlayScape project. The center also helped with site selection and a feasibility study.

About the Cincinnati Nature PlayScape Initiative

The Cincinnati Nature PlayScape Initiative partnership was initially supported by a grant from the Harriet Williams Downey Fund at Greater Cincinnati Foundation that was awarded to the Cincinnati Nature Center.

The grant was to:

  • Support the preparation of landscape architects in creating Nature PlayScapes
  • Build two PlayScapes in Greater Cincinnati and
  • Educate the Cincinnati USA community about the health and educational benefits of frequent play in nature

A PNC Grow Up Great science grant provided additional support to the partnership.

Cincinnati Nature Center opened its 1.6 acre Marge & Charles Schott Nature PlayScape last August.
