Even The Sidewalks Help Kids Learn At Cantonment Park

August 19, 2018

Even the sidewalks help children learn at Carver Park in Cantonment.

Decals placed on sidewalks in the park offer children a chance to play and learn.  The decals reinforce concepts that will be important for children when they start school. Skills like counting, letter naming, shape and color identification are built into the nine decal designs.

Partners in the project included  the Cantonment Rotary Club and the Studer Community Institute.

Cantonment Rotary President Bobby King said the project was a great match for Rotary’s commitment to community, education and improving the lives of children.

“Carver Park has been recently renovated through the efforts of Cantonment Improvement Community (CIC),” King said. “Their organization is dedicated to helping the children by improving this community. Their efforts and dedication has inspired us.  For us at Cantonment Rotary, this was an easy and clear decision to utilize our Rotarian grant for this project. It is a piece of the puzzle in making a difference.  Seeing the smile on a child’s face while learning and interacting with the decals is special.”

Carver Park is located at 208 Webb Street.  The play and picnic areas at the park are located under the largest natural oak canopy of any Escambia County park.

    Some of you will complain about any and everything! This was nice of them to do this for the kids. I do agree that the first one should be corrected. Maybe someone can get a marker and add another triangle.

    It also has the moon and a rocket…….pretty sure they are not planets either….the decal does not say they are all planets.

    However the #13 mistake and the truck going the wrong way are pretty funny

    and what is the reason for the Pensacola decal

    Road on map of Florida does not make it to Escambia County area before exiting north.
    Kind of how the Tallahassee Politicians treat us so this is Indeed a Very Accurate Map.
    Guessing the flow of traffic is all leaving South Florida and going North. Thought it was the other way around.
    Map is very confusing and The Studer Group could have done a better job of being more accurate.
    Oh well…..What-EVER.

    Why do the numbers in the top photo, which are supposed to be sequential, have the number twelve and then twelve triangles instead of thirteen!!

    “Pluto is not a planet.”

    Actually, it is classified as a dwarf planet.

    There’s another error. See the one with the road? The 18-wheeler with the blue cab is going the wrong way. This is not good.

    Wonderful and clever!

    Who bought the 1990s clearance rack decals without review? Planet Pluto and counting errors are unacceptable. It almost seems like a joke on Cantonment.

    There’s the 13 error in the top photo and there’s an error with the planets below…Pluto is not a planet. I thought Studurs group was smarter than that.

  13. David Huie Green on August 19th, 2018 2:17 am

    Why does #13 only have 12?

    There is an error in the top picture. Can you spot it?
