Visit a Pop-Up Traffic Garden this summer

A “Pop-Up Traffic Garden,” featuring various road types including one- or two-lane streets, crosswalks and roundabouts, will be painted with liquid chalk designed to last for one week each at Garfield and Roosevelt elementary schools.

There will be signs on how to maneuver around the traffic garden and information on how to earn prizes while practicing pedestrian and bicycle safety skills.

“The Traffic Garden provides school students with a resource, creates a public recreation site for families, and can help reinvigorate neighborhoods as a physical, educational and public art piece,” said Danielle King, grants manager, special projects, and Safe Kids Thurston County coordinator.

The Pop-Up Traffic Gardens will be available for daycare groups and other community organizations to use on weekdays, and to community members on evenings and weekends, on the following weeks:


  • July 11-17: Garfield Elementary (by the play shed)
  • August 1-7: Roosevelt Elementary (by the play shed)
