Over the past few weeks, a team of BVSD bus drivers has installed 2-D “pop-up” traffic gardens on playgrounds and basketball courts at Heatherwood, Meadowlark, Mesa, Emerald, Columbine and Coal Creek. Made with spray chalk and stencils, these temporary traffic gardens look like a miniature world of streets for children to navigate.

The idea is to provide a safe space for kids to practice bicycle and pedestrian skills while creating a new playspace for children to get outside and get some exercise. There is something about whole body movement while having imaginative fun that makes traffic gardens an effective learning tool.
