In case you missed it, the treehouse perched in our backyard was on national TV! It was featured in the July 12 episode of “Treehouse Guys,” a show on the DIY Network that followed the construction of the project. A treehouse is an icon of childhood and the perfect getaway to enjoy the forest canopy for quiet moments alone or play a board game with a friend. Through a child’s imagination you can search the jungle for exotic animals, protect the fort from invaders or watch for pirates. What started as a dream became a reality through the generous assistance from private donors and foundations, along with the gift of time, effort and materials from community businesses and volunteers.
The treehouse is a 16ft octagon suspended eight feet off the ground in a 100-year-old red oak. Donated landscape lighting brings this escape to life at night for all to enjoy at evening gatherings. The treehouse has natural seating, game tables, lookouts and much more. It’s the perfect 360-degree vantage point of the surrounding woods and playground. The area underneath is a naturalized garden, Margaret’s Memory Garden, perfect for a stroll on paths through forest flowers to the brook or a rustic bench to enjoy the wind in the leaves. We never stop dreaming and with your continued commitment, we’ll never stop doing.
