Here’s a great idea: a music-oriented playground for kids!
Cottonwood Elementary school recently added a new section to their playground, and you’re welcome to come play the various xylophone-like instruments, tuned drums, and contra-bass chimes whenever school is not in session.
Even the neighbors like this musical park, since all the instruments produce mellow, somewhat ethereal sounds.
PVC Pipes, colorfully painted to look like an audience, surround the music area. Benches provide a place for a live audience to enjoy the impromptu performances as well.
