Design Challenge

About The Program

The Design Challenge creates the opportunity for college, high school, elementary and preschool students to work together with landscape professionals to design and build natural schoolyards and playspaces in communities across North America!

2018 Design Challenge

In October of 2018, Wentworth Landscapes and Landscape Ontario hosted teams of landscape design students from Algonquin College, Niagara Parks School of Horticulture and University of Guelph to participate in a design charrette with students and teachers from First Adventure Child Development Centre and Georges Vanier Catholic School in Belleville, Ontario. Using the input and ideas generated during the charrette, the teams created final proposals for a new natural playground and schoolyard.
