ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The Cobb School broke ground on their long-awaited natural playscape project.

School officials said over $50,000 in grants and donations have been raised to get this project underway

“We will have a fort building area, a tree house, a garden area. It's all based around natural elements,” said Diane Dunas, the executive director of the Cobb School.

“It's a little edgier - probably get some bumps and bruises - but it's really good for the kids imagination and development to not just be on equipment, but to be making their own play.”

School officials said they are still looking for donations to help fund the playscape project, set to open this September.
