Green Playces: Wilkinsburg

About Green Playces: Wilkinsburg

The Wilkinsburg Green Playce is complete.  We successfully turned Hosanna House’s side yard into an outdoor education space along with some areas for active play for the kids.

The Hosanna House Inc. partnership with [Grounded's] Green Playce program has been a rewarding experience. The partnership has allowed us to fulfill our vision of obtaining a functional outdoor classroom. The amazing outdoor space that was created will benefit children from toddler through Kindergarten allowing HHI to shift their indoor early learning programming to the outdoors, embracing the opportunity to connect with nature and support a broader range of engagement. We are in complete appreciation of [Grounded] and all of the staff and friends who helped in this effort.
