In addition to recreation, parents and educators can also utilize the parks as outdoor classrooms for a variety of subjects. For instance, Bradley Nature Park will have new signs posted in late spring that provide updated information about wildlife typically found in the park, courtesy of a local Girl Scout working on her Gold Award project.
