Although the winter weather has lingered into spring, Naper Settlement has their eye on the warm temperatures of summer.
The Settlement recently had the official groundbreaking for the new Rita (Fredenhagen) and John Harvard Early Learning Playscape, set to open in Mid-July.
Settlement visitors of all ages attended the event, to kick off construction for the 10,000-square-foot interactive area for kids ages two to seven.
Located in the Fort Payne area of the Settlement, the playscape will have a splash pad, trading post, and other hands-on activities.
The playscape is funded by a gift from John and Rita Harvard, a SECA Grant, money from the city’s Capital Improvement Program, and the Naperville Park District.
