More Log Cabins Articles The garden of a family centre in Milton Keynes has undergone a makeover aimed at offering children outdoor play opportunities throughout the year.
Greenley's Children's Centre, which recently had an official opening for its revamped garden, has been fitted with an undercover outdoor space, a new sandpit, a log cabin and a sensory garden where children can discover different flowers and plants, Children & Young People Now reported.
"It's really important that children get to explore the outdoors and get some fresh air in a safe and fun environment," commented Claire Wilson, office manager at the centre.
"That's exactly what our new garden will do."
She added that families will be invited to join their children at the centre for a range of activities, with the space intended to allow people to enjoy the outdoors "without the weather getting in the way".
The news come after it was reported last week that a community-based school grant is helping to pay for much-needed repairs to flower beds and local garden buildings in the US.
According to BerksmontNews.com, the Learn and Serve Grant has enabled students of Hamburg Area High School in Pennsylvania to erect new pavilion roofs in a local park and help "beautify" gardens in the area.
