We had eight amazing projects on the ballot.
YEAR 3 WINNING PROJECTS
Keney Park Fitness Trail
This project was developed by Hartford high school students to install equipment for 12-14 exercise stations and create a fitness trail in Keney Park along the interior park road beginning at the Pool and ending at the West Meadow trail. Each fitness station offers a different type of activity or exercise such as a rowing machine, an elliptical cross trainer, butterfly, parallel bars, and others.
This project will install Playful Learning Spaces at two neighborhood branches of the Hartford Public Library: Albany (Upper Albany) and Camp Field (South End) branches. These installations will be based on proven play-based methods, tailored to the needs and culture of each neighborhood. Guided forms of play can help children to develop specific targeted skills in areas such as math, literacy, spatial awareness, and language. This will help improve learning outcomes for them, especially if these installations are coordinated with and support the school curriculum. These installations may be indoors or outdoors.
