Sands Point Preserve Opens Woodland Playground

Sands Point Preserve Opens Woodland Playground

The new playground boasts brand-new climbing features.


Monday, May 27 at 2-6pm will be the grand opening of the Woodland Playground at the Sands Point Preserve. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place promptly at 2pm.

Located in the woods next to the Phil DeJana Learning Center, the playground, features state-of-the-art equipment, including a custom-designed cedar castle with towers, turrets, tunnels, a spiral slide, and climbing walls, along with a 75-foot zip line, rockers, spinners, tether ball, and a huge geodesic dome climber. Children of all ages and abilities can enjoy creative play in a rage of modalities to develop coordination, balance, and strength.

The Conservancy and the Playground Committee including Karli Hagedorn, Chiara Mai, Stacey Satovsky, and Roshy Vultaggio, along with the many Butterfly Ball sponsors together were able to make this magical playground come to fruition.



The Woodland Playground is also home to the new quail coop—a charming English cottage that serves as a resource for the Conservancy’s education programs. This season, 200 Bobwhite chicks will be nurtured here and released onto the preserve’s ground to help control ticks—a natural and effective form of pest management.

Upcoming enhancements also include a Little Free Library contributed by the Girl Scouts, a new water play feature, and more.

The playground will be open daily at 8am to 30-mintues before closing.
