Penny Gagnon, Executive Director of the CDC, explains that the outdoor is still in the development stages, but is intended to be a “nature-inspired” environment for its children. 

“Research tells us that when children play in natural environments, their play is more imaginative and creative play fosters language and development,” she says. “We know that nature buffers the impact of life stress on children and the greater the amount of nature exposure, the greater the benefits.” 

Encana has previously supported an inside playground in Dawson Creek, and Fiona Liebelt, Community Relations Advisor, says the energy company is excited to help out in Fort St. John.
