History of the Bouldering Park

In 2017 Robyn Carlton, CEO of LMC, began conversations with the Access Fund about transforming the boulders in the park to be able to provide a safe and environmental friendly option for climbers to enjoy their sport.

The anticipated use of the bouldering park, meant that there should be durable surfaces at the base of the boulder as well as steps for the climbers to come down to lessen the erosion impact of the sport.

The boulders were covered in English Ivy and other invasive plants, posing quite the challenge to get them ready for the public to enjoy.

Through the hard work of The Howard School Interns and the hundreds of volunteers that they have helped lead over the past few years, the boulders have been made accessible and durable surfaces have been built.
