Forest Park Nature Playscape Youth Advisory Committee

Introducing the Forest Park Nature Playscape Youth Advisory Committee!


For the natural playscape we are designing for consideration in St. Louis's Forest Park with the conservancy Forest Park Forever and the City of St. Louis's Department of Parks, Recreation & Forestry we recruited a handful of area youths to form the Youth Advisory Committee (YAC), a team of play experts that provide critical and creative feedback to improve designs for the playscape.

The Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is a diverse group of young St. Louisans who are helping to ensure that the new playscape will be fun, attractive, and safe for St. Louisans of all ages.

YAC is working closely with the design team to identify and design nature-based play activities and environments. Through a series of engagement events, YAC has provided critical and creative feedback on the evolving design of the playscape.

Included here are some pictures from our inaugural event, which we organized with Sarah Tisdale.
