The Westridge Outdoor Classroom was established in 1991 in cooperation with Westridge Elementary School.  Approximately three acres of native prairie (shortgrass & mesic) was planted by City staff, teachers, and students along with many native trees.  Teachers working at Westridge Elementary School in the early 1990’s developed curriculum based on use of the classroom.  Several Arbor Day celebrations occurred in the classroom with hundreds of students in attendance.
