Discover Together

Outdoor Adventure Center at Standley Lake

JCPL is helping to raise readers. We are excited that our Kids & Families space at the Standley Lake Library will soon go beyond library walls. The Discover Together outdoor adventure center is coming soon! Families will have the opportunity to move, pretend, observe, use their senses and make new friends.

Discover Together will have many areas to explore:

  • Sensory Garden
  • Willow Dome
  • Log Steppers
  • Insect Hotel
  • Loose Parts

We hired Learning Landscapes Design to transform a concrete area and beyond into a playscape. View the conceptual design of Phase 1 & 2.

Listen to our Landscape Architect, Michelle Mathis, talk about the philosophy of her work.
