The award-winning design of Trillium Creek school embraced the site’s natural resources to create opportunities for forest and water play and environmental education curriculum. Amenities such as a creek, a wetland, and a wooded area blend this 20-acre school with its’ natural surroundings. The stormwater system features ornamental and educational details that reveal the water’s journey through the school grounds, eventually recharging the wetland. Amenities include a variety of play equipment, learning gardens, restoration plantings, and a bridge.
