Recycling is not a new idea. During World War II, children on the home front helped the war effort by salvaging scrap. Children aged eight to nine, join us for a fun afternoon listening to a story about a young girl helping the war effort and participate in activities to learn about World War II.

PlaygroundsSeba Playground

Seba Playground will be closed to reconstruct the current Seba Tot Lot into a playground for children of all ages. The new design will enlarge the toddler area by adding a custom spray shower, seating, and two new tot play units. Additional play spaces will also be added for 5 to 12 year olds, and will include a large accessible play unit, a second spray shower and seating area. These two play areas will be joined by 15 additional swings for both age groups. The site will also feature an accessible drinking fountain, attractive plantings, and a bicycle rack.
