Ewart Park in Columbus gets new learning feature

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Now there is a new way for kids to engage in fundamental learning outdoors!

Leadership Columbus, with the help of United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley, unveiled a new "Born Learning Trail" Tuesday.

It's located at Ewart Park off Buena Vista Road in Columbus.

Developers say it's critical for parents to use outings such as the born learning trail to prepare children for school.

"It's so important to get kids out of the house, to get them moving and here at this park especially because it's a community park, this park is for the neighborhood right here. We see people walking to it, we see people from the homes nearby coming to enjoy the park, so everything we can do to enhance the park and make it even better for the community is important," Kel Jackson said.

The trail included a series of seven signs and brightly painted concrete pads.
