The second International School Grounds Alliance conference took place in San Francisco in August 2011, bringing together advocates for outdoor learning and play in schools from around the globe. One of the conference days included visits to schoolyards and other sites of interest. PLL Jules visited the Berkeley Adventure Playground.

Day two of the International Green Schoolyards conference took me and others to Berkeley’s Adventure Playground, situated on reclaimed land and sandwiched between a very conventional play park and a yachting marina.
