The Schaumburg Park Foundation recently presented the Schaumburg Board of Park Commissioners with $230,000 to support the construction of Bison's Bluff natural playground. Pictured left to right are: Foundation Trustees Matt Frank, Don Morrison, Suzanne Poeschel, Kathy Longueil, Bill Tucknott and Brian Bieschke. Pictured left to right from the Schaumburg Board of Park Commissioners are: Sharon DiMaria, George Longmeyer, Mike Daniels, Dave Johnson and Executive Director Tony LaFrenere.
Bison’s Bluff will engage children in active and passive play in a natural setting. This unique area features natural materials (logs, boulders, sand, etc.) and manufactured items that mimic natural rock outcroppings, fallen logs, a flowing stream, wetland, beaver lodge and other features. The site also will include hidden nooks for sitting and engaging in imaginative play.
Funds for the donation were raised through Foundation events including the Links Technology Cup, Solstice Hop & Vine Fest and Holiday Bazaar.
The Foundation, a 501(c) (3) organization, is dedicated to providing resources for the preservation of open space, conservation, nature and recreation in Schaumburg.
