Voter-approved city bond funding pays for schoolyard transformation program
Denver voters passed a multi-million dollar bond initiative in 2008 to fund the redevelopment of every Denver public elementary schoolyard into a learning landscape by 2013. Learning Landscape schoolyard-design reflects the unique culture and history of the people, school and neighborhood it serves, while providing opportunities for physical activity, socialization & creative play. The vote came after years of successful partnerships among university students, elementary schools and community members in building learning landscapes; the School in the Yard is a downloadable book that details the path of this work.
