Tower's Backyard Project, an Architectural Drawing

Tower School's New Backyard

A transformative gift, designated for the installation of a turf field at Tower, enabled Tower School to design a premiere outdoor environment to enhance Tower’s athletic, physical education and science programs. The Backyard includes an environmentally friendly turf field, two new playgrounds, a teaching garden with a greenhouse, an outdoor classroom adjacent to the wetlands, and a community gathering space. 

Tower School has been amazing. Our children are happy, balanced and love to learn. We have made wonderful life-long friends through the Tower community, as have our children.
