Kids playing in street with foam toys

Green Street Challenge Rutland

Transforming Downtown Rutland into a Come Alive Outside Playground

Carpenter & Costin and Come Alive Outside recently transformed Center Street in Rutland into an urban playground in a pretty creative way. We captured the process in a time-lapse video so you can see what it takes in just about two minutes.

“We laid down 6,000 square feet of sod in the morning and then removed it in the evening thanks to a small army of volunteers who helped roll it up,” said Russ Marsan. “In between setting up and tearing down, Come Alive Outside and WonderFeet Kids Museum hosted many games and fun events for the kids to enjoy.”

Marsan continued, “The sod was generously donated by Saratoga Sod Farms, so after our event, we donated it to Habitat for Humanity’s newest home in Rutland. Now that’s what we call a win-win for our community!”
